ISTE Campfires are unconference-style gatherings that provide a unique and dynamic approach to professional development allowing educators to drive their own learning and connect in conversation around a similar interest. On the day of the event, attendees will create the conversation topics based on their interests and needs. This approach puts the power of learning directly in the hands of the participants and allows for a more personalized and meaningful experience.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore and discuss best practices, success stories and challenges related to their learning environments. This interactive conversation-focused session will allow attendees to share their own experiences, ask questions, and learn from one another in a supportive and collaborative environment.
