Hack Education and After Party to Kick-Off ISTE 2013

By June 11, 2013July 16th, 2021No Comments

The 2013 ISTE conference is quickly approaching at the end of June, but before the official program begins, ISTE Unplugged will kick-off the week. This series of independent events take place in, around, and with the support of ISTE, providing activities for hundreds of social media and tech-savvy educators.

Hack Education will begin the ISTE festivities on Saturday, June 22 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The all-day “unconference,” previously titled SocialEdCon and EduBloggerCon, typically draws 200 to 300 participants from around the world. The event provides a collaborative environment for informal conversations about important issues related to social media and education technology. This year Hack Education will be co-chaired by popular edublogger, Audrey Watters.

The fun continues that evening with the Hack Education After Party, sponsored by CB&A in partnership with StudyBlue and Follett. Continue conversations with new friends from earlier that day and have some fun on your first night in San Antonio! Held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk, the event will include plenty of activities and networking opportunities for Hack Education attendees. The first 150 guests to arrive will receive a drink ticket (and maybe something else!).

Other ISTE Unplugged events include:

Sunday, June 23

  • Global Education Summit – A three-hour mini-conference follow-up to the online Global Education Conference, focusing on globally-connecting students and teachers.

Monday, June 24

  • EdTechWomen at ISTE – The first-ever dinner and networking event for women and their supporters in education technology.
  • The Bloggers’ Café – An informal conference center for bloggers, social media savvy and others looking to connect.

The CB&A team is looking forward to sunny San Antonio and connecting with other ed tech advocates at these ISTE Unplugged events.
