I have learned from attending ISTE as well as other conferences the importance of taking the time to review key learnings and connections. Typically, the entire time at a conference you are on the go both physically and mentally. During sessions, you take copious notes and while strolling around the exhibit hall, poster sessions or playground areas one amasses a small amount of collateral as a reminder. Now that you are home the real work begins, making sense of all you returned home with.
