In this episode, I chat with Ronda Blevins and Jennifer Mitchell. This is their first time at ISTE Live so we discuss what they packed, what sessions they are ready to hit, and their expectations. They are great guests and were eager to discuss what they plan to get out of this conference. I’m planning to catch up with them after ISTE is over to see what they actually got out of it. Peep this episode! To connect with Ronda and Jennifer, use the links below. Buen provecho!
