Over the next three days over 75 formal educational convesations and many many more informal conversations will be happening at this year’s Educon 2.2 Conference. This unique gathering at the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia will bring aout 500 educators together for a truely amazing 3 days. One of the best thinjgs about it is that many others will be able to attend virtually.
“This weekend (January 30 & 31) Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia is hosting Educon 2.2, an education conference that is “both a conversation and a conference.” In its third year, this unique event actively involves the school’s students in organizing the event, and gathers lots of great names from the educational “blogosphere” together to facilitate the “conversations.” As an experiment in collaboration (students are running all of the streams), I’m excited to be helping to provide live Elluminate streams of all 76 sessions on Saturday and Sunday as part of the work I do for Elluminate at LearnCentral.org.
The conference website is at http://www.educon22.org. A listing of of sessions (“conversations”) with the links to their descriptions and the Elluminate rooms is at http://www.educon22.org/
I consider myself fortunate to be able to attend the conference and if you follow my Twitter feed (stevesoko) you will see me tweeting. The twitter search term for the conference is just educon, and if you follow that term you will see a whole lot of tweets from people a lot smarter than me!
