Edubloggercon07 a success!

Ever wonder what your aggregator would look like in person?

Now you know. 🙂

This picture pretty much sums up the edubloggercon today. What a great way to start the conference! So much to think about that my head hurts…of course the 3 hours of sleep on the red eye last night might have something to do with that as well.

Some great conversations were started today that I think you’ll be hearing more about in the blogosphere. David Walick led a great discussion on the Future of Schools.

We really got deep into what makes a community led by Sheryl. This is a topic I’m looking forward to thinking about. I think there is great power in Virtual Learning Communities within our schools. Both from a student end and a teacher end. How do we continue to push forward? What defines a VLC and how do you start and sustain one within your school? All questions I’ll be pondering over the next couple days.

It was an amazing day to be able to meet some of the people I Skype with, chat with, and interact with while thousands of miles apart right in front of me….it’s just so cool. The best part is…I have four more days to interact, converse, and get to know these people in person…and that’s what I’m looking forward to!

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.


  1. I’d love to meet you during the conference!

    My edublogs site is down so I’m posting one from tumblr–technolibrary.tumblr.com.

    I missed the edublogger con 🙁 so I am hoping to locate people during the next few days!

  2. One of the greatest moments of the day was when Julie and I were chatting and you came down and plopped right in between us. So amazing. I often had a skype window open with Julie and one with you. It is glad to see you are real and just as compelling in person as you are in your blog. One of us brave souls needs to take the photo and flickr label who everyone is!
