“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” – Marc Riboud

Today is National Selfie Day. To celebrate I am sending you on a mission to create memorable conference experiences this year and go on an an Epic Selfie Conference Adventure. To complete this mission you will take at least 5 selfie images or videos, which meet any of the challenges listed below. Feel free to come up with your own challenges. Then post these selfies using the conference hashtag and #EdtechMissions. I hope you will complete this selfie adventure with me at ISTE this year.

I write about the significance of selfies for today’s digital learners in my upcoming  book,  Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions in Your Classroom. Selfies are an important part of our students’ digital identity and experience and help them humanize their digital experience. By completing the selfie challenges you will step out of your comfort zone, meet new educators, and be able to understand more about our students’ digital culture.
