Glad to find this group. Just co-organized our first #edcampsiouxcity. It was a success. Ready to expand for next year! Looking forward to learning from all of you.

Dear all,

I'm from Malaysia and have experience in handling English-In-Camp for our students from the district to the national level. Interested to share with any of you and also to get more input on new things to add to the content of the camp. Feel free to connect with me.

All info for planning an edcamp can be found on the edcamp wiki. Also feel free to reach out to me on Twitter.

If anyone knows about other educators wanting to plan an Edcamp/TeachMeet in the Louisville, KY, let me know.  I'm going to one about 2 hours away in Bowling Green, KY (southern KY), but would love to plan one in the Louisville area as well.

Getting excited to get details worked out for edcampLouisiana which is happening on July 9th. I am glad I have all of you I can go to for advice.

Tried Adobe Connect for streaming the video / sound from Teachmeet Fife #tmfife11. The audio was very good and but image (from a webcam) was a bit pixellated. Unfortunately there was also high contrast between the screen-based presentations and the presenters, so the camera had some trouble coping. For the future I'll invest in a higher resolution webcam and also make sure the lighting conditions in the venue are less contrasty.

Had a great convo with Jason Bedell about TeachMeets and Dan Callahan about edcamps. Thanks you two! I'm finishing up an article about unconferences. I can find plenty of background for the edcamp model, but less detailed info about the teachmeet model. Can someone aim me in the right direction? I'm especially looking for a TeachMeet template/how-to similar to the one Mary Beth Hertz posted on Edutopia about edcamp: http://bit.ly/bN7yYi Thanks to all, M.E. (edcamp Cincy)

Keys to Change Leadership

Leading change to help school practitioners embrace not only technology in teaching but in assessment, grading, and outcomes can be a challenge. Systemic, meaningful change from an environment of rote learning to the collaborative nature in a 1:1 environment can be met with resistance. With his experience as an implementation change agent, Dr. Dillon served as coach, mentor and guide for school leaders and School Improvement Teams embarking on this change.As the picture of how to best support…See More

I thought I'd eventually be out of a job.

I ask a student to attach a file to an email and I get a blank stare.I tell the class to open a new tab so they have two websites open at the same time and I have to show them how to do that a few times.I assume that since they are growing up with technology they naturally know how to use it, but I am shown on a daily basis that this is not the case. They know how to get to their game website and play till their eyeballs fall out, but when I ask them to find a file they created yesterday, they…See More
