A week or so ago I was asked by soon to be ISTE president the AWEsome Ms. Holly Jobe to create "a page on the board wiki and/or a word doc with links and descriptions of the tools that would help orient new board members to all the ISTE tools" and I did! Taking the easy way out (this is a very busy time for me!) I curated the info from various ISTE publications, the main ISTE webpage, and used my own graphics wherever possible so that the new ISTE board members would have everything ISTE Social Media on one wikipage.
But as the ISTE board wikipage is protected - ya'll can't see it...so I thought I'd re-post it here (with minor changes) so that these great resources can be enjoyed by anyone, not just ISTE board members! I also think I'm gonna post these as a blog on the ISTE Community Ning. Comment if I missed anything, or if you have a suggestion for inclusion...Enjoy!
