If you’re an innovative educator, one way is through special interest groups. ISTE’s special interest groups (SIGs) are a great way to find others who share your interests and it’s free for members. There are dozens of groups with thousands of members each from around the world. You can see for yourself below.
Joining a special interest group connects you year-round to professional development opportunities, resources, listserves, podcasts, discussion forums, webinars, face-to-face forums and events at ISTE and elsewhere and more! SIGs also come together to find like-minded people to do things like write books or create podcasts.
Each special interest group has a few great ways to connect.
- Online learning community
- Facebook page (varies from group to group)
- A Twitter tag (generally the SIG abbreviation i.e. @SIG1to1)
Oh, and if you see Lisa, the art educator from Vermont, let her know she should connect with and join the Arts Educators (SIGAE).
