NECC here I come

20 Jun 2007

7:16 a.m. Ugh. That’s a bit earlier than I like for air travel departures. But at least I have several days of interesting conversations and endless audio editing to look forward to.

NECC is back and in Atlanta this year. I’ll be doing two identical half-day workshops (Podcasting—The New Voice for Learners) with a fellow ADE and all-around cool guy Joe Morelock from Oregon. In addition, I’m leading a team of Apple Distinguished Educators who will be producing the official NECC podcast channel on behalf of ISTE.

I’m really looking forward to NECC this year. Every year there are more friends to meet and greet. I’m very impressed with how ISTE continues to embrace blogging, podcasting, and other forms of web publishing. ISTE is really way out in front on this stuff compared to any other conference I’ve attended in the last couple years. They’re even getting on board with a systematic approach to Technorati tagging courtesy of Steve Hargadon.

See you there.

One response to NECC here I come

  1. Hi!

    This may be a bit off topic but I had a question about conferences. I hear vague snatches of conversations on blogs about this or that conference on educational technology but I don’t really know anything specific about them. Maybe one reason is that I am in Canada and don’t hear about the different conferences available on educational technology. I was wondering if you might take a moment and do a post on the different conferences available and what sort of areas they cover. I would be very interested in knowing what is out there in terms of the big conferences and even which ones you think are the really good ones to attend.

    Thanks
    Ian
