I am a teacher and I was wondering if you are making these sessions available online either by live stream or other video to be viewed afterwards?

Deena Kimmel 20/06/2019 18:56:28
Hi Paul! We do not have any plans to live stream or record the above sessions. However, we will most likely take short video clips of some of the sessions for our social networks and will be live Tweeting as much as possible. You can follow us on Twitter here for all of our ISTE updates: Thanks!
