Thousands of educators gathered in San Antonio this week for the 2013 International Society for Technology in Education Conference.
Beyond the exhibit hall, sessions and keynote speeches, educators took to Twitter to do what they do best: collaborate and spread knowledge.
As the show comes to a close, our editors have assembled some of the most interesting comments from attendees and others during the three-day event. Want to join the conversation? The event winds down today. But you can still get in on the action by tweeting your comments to #iste13.
42% of HS kids believe they will personally create something that changes the world. We’ve got to play to that in schools. #iste13

#ISTE13 is a great opportunity to have awkward face to face conversations with people you only really know as an avatar.

Engagement is not amusement or entertainment - it is about intellectual work; work that is purposeful and that is valued. #iste13

Crossover is key. As educators, we can learn a ton by getting out of our 'box' & networking w/ others outside our field #iste13

Mobile learning is not about devices- it's how we change teaching and learning #iste13

When a lesson fails, do you quit teaching? So if technology fails, why quit using it? Expect it. Plan for it. Learn from it. #iste13
