"Julie, the after parties/get togethers were about the best part of it. You get to meet new folks from other parts of the country. They aren't always formal, some were just getting together with friends from online, or that we meet at the…"
"Great question. This was my first NECC. I had an amazing time. I was overwhelmed (as I expected to be). I got to meet some great people and participate in some wonderful sessions and discussions. What I would do over or differently? I made it to…"
"Being my first NECC I would definitely stay more close to the convention center and avoid costly transportation to stay involved throughout the day/night. Also, I would make sure to receive confirmation for BYOL sessions. I signed up too early this…"
"Great topic and something I was thinking about today as I was reading many posts about NECC. Like many others here planning was my weak point. I will start planning much earlier next time. I waited too late to get into any of the BYOL sessions that…"
"I missed the LOC event also, but it was because of a personal priority to attend an Apple Distinguished Educators event that was scheduled at the same time.

I'm currently the Discovery Educator Network (DEN) Community Manager. Prior to joining Discovery Education, I spent six years as an Elementary Library Media Specialist and eight years teaching third grade. When I'm not at school, I'm probably online, playing or watching sports, or driving my two kids to one of their activities.

Hi Chad. I was wondering if you have any high school contacts who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
With your interest in Education Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
I went to Teryl Magee's Skype demo at TETC in Nashville,TN this year. I just joined this Ning today and looked at videoconferencing and there you were. When you have time, could you let me know how your project turned out? I'm really interested in doing something with Skype and my fifth graders. I'd love to come up with something for them to do so that they could interact with another classroom. If you have any ideas you can pass along I'd love to hear them...thanks in advance!
We're Midwest neighbors, I'm in Illinois! I'm a district technology integration specialist and work in Northbrook, IL (a northern suburb of Chicago). If you'd like an adult to interview, would love to Skype with one or more of your students. I taught 4th grade for many years and remember well those state research projects.
I may also be able to find a student to be interviewed, but might want the questions in advance to be sure s/he knows the answers (ie. population of IL or whatever 'fact' you might want answered)
I can be reached many ways email: email@example.com, twitter: jepcke, or Skype: jepcke. I'm also a member of Classroom 2.0 if you want to leave me a message here.
Good luck with the project; love the idea, and I'll look for you on Twitter!
