Necc_logo  YIPPEEEE!!! The CA DEN is lucky to have the LARGEST NATIONAL EDUCATION COMPUTING CONFERENCE right here in San Diego this year, July 5-7th.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you beg your administrators to SIGN YOU UP!!! Every year this conference shifts to another state, so now is the time to go.  Hotels fill fast so make sure you make your reservations and check out the NECC website by going to http://web.uoregon.edu/ISTE/NECC2006/

The theme of this year’s NECC is Explore… Dream… Discover.  Almost sounds like it was written for our dynamic DEN members who have taken an incredible journey this year through technology. Many of you have asked if we will be hosting a DEN event at NECC and we are currently trying to get something in the works… but we need to know who will be there.

So, here’s your chance… POST A COMMENT and let us know WILL YOU BE AT NECC?

    ALL of the Del Mar USD Site Technology Coordinators (7 credentialed teachers), the district Director of Technology, and I (unitedstreaming district administrator and married to the Director) will be in attendance! Our home is 10 min. from Sea World and 15-20 minutes (depending on traffic) from the San Diego Convention Center on the cliff overlooking the ocean between Pacific Beach and La Jolla. We could host a wine and cheese casual reception at our home if you would like an off-conference site venue. The view is spectacular! DEN members could car pool with those of us that have cars. We could designate a time and place to meet on the conference site, hand out maps, and make sure that everyone has a ride. Discovery could either cater dinner at our house or we could suggest local places that are the new hot spots in Pacific Beach and La Jolla. Some restaurants, we can walk along the beach to and others we would need to car pool to. Jannita, we should talk! Depending on numbers of DEN members that are interested, we could even charter a bus! Leave it to Ray to be staying at Hotel Solamar – a new, hip, boutique hotel with a great 4th floor bar around the pool with lounging beds!

    All signed up and excited about attending my 1st NECC…especially since it’s close to home. Won’t be at the Convention Center for the 7/4 evening festivities since I’ll be helping out at the 4th of July BBQ on the historic ferryboat Berkeley at the San Diego Maritime Museum. It’s another great place on SD bay to watch the fireworks if anyone’s interested…plus the food’s great! Looking forward to meeting other den members at Dave and Buster’s, and also at the Wine and Cheese Party if it happens.
