Savvy #ISTE17 Interviews: Learning with Your PLN at Conferences

Baby Savvy spoke to two incredible leaders who we connected with on Twitter in the first year I joined, Elana Leoni (@Elanaleoni) and Patrick Larkin (@patrickmlarkin). I would definitely describe these folks as part of my Passionate Learning Network (PLN). We connected years ago, met at conferences, and continue to learn so much from each other. In fact, Elana, was there the first day Savvy’s father and I met at ISTE. Check out what Elana and Patrick have to share about the power of teachers learning from other educators and connecting with them in person at conferences like ISTE. To check out Savvy’s other live interviews follow @ShellTerrell or check out continuous live streams of all of ISTE on the hashtag, #PassTheScopeEDU.
