My bags are packed – I’m ready to go . . .
I’m excited to be headed to San Antonio for NECC 2008. I’ve had the opportunity to attend NECC a few times, but not for the past several years. It has evolved into a myriad of “conferences within the conference” with specialized sessions and meet-ups. I can’t possibly attend every session that has captured my interest. Actually, my conference planner looks a little overwhelming with all the workshops, sessions, and poster presentations that I want to try to hit. And, that’s not even taking into account how much I can learn just by walking around the vendor hall or aggregating all the NECC2008 tags online.
I can ‘t wait for the DEN pre-conference at the Enchanted Springs Ranch. I have a feeling that we will be seeing some pretty awesome photographs from that experience. I have a mental image of Hall, Lance, and Steve roping some cattle . . .
I am also thrilled to be able to meet so many inspiring DEN STARs who will be presenting at NECC this year. If you are planning to attend, check out the listing of DEN STAR presentations posted on the National Blog. If you are planning to blog about any of their sessions, don’t forget to tag your posts with their assigned presenter tags. If you are not planning to attend, you can still participate virutally. The tags can help you search for material posted online about the sessions. You can also participate by joining the dynamic Ning network created especially for the conference, NECC2008. You can also check out the NECC Unplugged and Bloggers Cafe and EduBloggerCon for some virtual extensions.
So, this laptop is the last thing I have to pack. Check back over the next few days for my posts from NECC. I will be cross-posting my Cliotech posts on this blog.
