Monday, June 30 from 5:00 to 6:15 pm
ISTE Special Interest Groups will also be meeting during the conference sessions and the Birds timeslots.
Purpose of the Birds Group
The purpose of the Birds group is to:
• identify prospective organizers/moderators, topics, or groups with similar interest to requesting meeting space
• identify collaborations between people with similar topics in mind
• gauge audience interest in the topics
• plan and develop the content (outline scope of the topic, guiding questions, useful resources, etc.)
• host results and ongoing information on the topics for a time following the conference.
Meeting space will constrain the number of Birds sessions that can be accepted. The ISTE 2014 Program Committee will make the final decisions and schedule the Birds sessions into time slots and locations.
