Derek Larson and Jen Giffen both attended ISTE 2017 in San Antonio, Texas and both are here sharing their experiences from the conference.

Derek was selected as an ISTE Ignite speaker and Jen was one of four people selected from her district in Canada to attend the conference.

Derek and Jen met each other by chance because of an interaction with Alice Keeler. As Derek said, “When Alice Keeler asks you to go to lunch you go.” Jen recognized Derek as a previous guest on the podcast (episode 22, episode 67).

Their major takeaway was that conferences are still relevant but not for learning. Conferences provide the most value in providing the opportunity to have those valuable face to face meetings and make genuine connections with others.
