Today I feel pretty darn privileged because I get to spend the day networking at TechForum Midwest, which just happens to be local for me 🙂 No flight required!
Highlight of the day has been the networking taking place. Sheryl Nussbaum Beach set the right tone with her opening keynote, encouraging the attendees to spend time today building out their own personal learning networks. And without a question, people have been taking it to heart. Tweet’s have been flying all over, sessions are being uStreamed and recorded for podcasts, and the networking has truly been exemplary. Of course, there are about half a dozen STAR Discovery Educators or so around, who are leading by example!
As promised, here is a link to my afternoon presentation dealing with AUP’s, Social Networking and Internet Safety. It’s a messy topic to be sure, but we had a great discussion and there seemed to be many lightbulbs switching on above people’s heads.
Great stuff, and I was glad just to be a part of it.
