The Ultimate Guide to #ISTE13

It's that time of year again where thousands upon thousands of tech-enthused educators come together at the annual ISTE conference!  The hosts of the TechEducator Podcast invited ISTE13 keynote speaker, Adam Bellow, and myself onto the show last night for our take on the Ultimate conference experience.  Check out the recording here.
There are lots of posts going around right now to help others prepare for the conference.  So in the spirit of sharing, here are my top 3 tips for the Ultimate ISTE experience:

Networking Fair
When:  Sunday, 6/23 from 3-5pm
What: An amazing opportunity to meet Twitter and Conference Ning friends face to face, make new friends, get great session ideas and be sure to stop by the YEN booth for YEN session picks!

Organized Conference PlannerWhen: Start NOW and download the app
What:  This is the premier ed tech conference with oodles and oodles of amazing session choices, I'm booked 14-deep on Tuesday along, have a backup session for your backup session, share notes with others using Google Drive or Evernote since you can't be in two places at once, and be sure to visit the Poster Sessions and Playground areas for a different learning and sharing environment.

Social Events Social opportunities are great way to decompress from an amazing day of learning!  Follow the #ISTE13 hashtag for ticketed events and casual meetups and treatups.  Plan ahead and come out to Lonesome Dove on Monday from 5pm-7pm for a #EpicYEN fun with the Young Educators Network, whether you are a young educator or young at heart!  Sign up today!

Your turn!  What are your top 3 tips to make this ISTE13 the ultimate conference?
