Edubloggercon East 2011

Hey Folks, hope everyone is having a great summer!

This Monday I had the great experience of attending Edubloggercon East here in my hometown of Boston.  Edubloggercon is an unconference (like Edcamp) in which the agenda of discussion-based sessions is created by attendees based on interests and needs.  You do not have to have a blog to attend; it is open to all educators and FREE, so I hope some SLPs in the area might consider coming next year (especially since I may help with its organization, depending on the timing of the conference).  Edubloggercon East is timed to coincide with the pre-conference activities of the Building Learning Communities conference sponsored by Alan November and November Learning, and I am reallllly lucky to be attending that (BLC11) for the coming three days.

The day was terrific and featured a lot of great discussion about apps, Google + (under Robyn Eaton's notes), and other educational topics, so I thought I would compile the links and tweets for you as follows.  I plan to do the same for BLC, as I am sure I will have a lot to share with you! Below, I especially encourage school-based clinicians to view the crazy video on reauthorizing NCLB (one participant put it quite well: we are not weeble-wobbles!) and respond on Angela Maiers' wiki, which gives you more or less a direct conduit to the government!
