Glad to find this group. Just co-organized our first #edcampsiouxcity. It was a success. Ready to expand for next year! Looking forward to learning from all of you.

Dear all,

I'm from Malaysia and have experience in handling English-In-Camp for our students from the district to the national level. Interested to share with any of you and also to get more input on new things to add to the content of the camp. Feel free to connect with me.

All info for planning an edcamp can be found on the edcamp wiki. Also feel free to reach out to me on Twitter.

If anyone knows about other educators wanting to plan an Edcamp/TeachMeet in the Louisville, KY, let me know.  I'm going to one about 2 hours away in Bowling Green, KY (southern KY), but would love to plan one in the Louisville area as well.

Tried Adobe Connect for streaming the video / sound from Teachmeet Fife #tmfife11. The audio was very good and but image (from a webcam) was a bit pixellated. Unfortunately there was also high contrast between the screen-based presentations and the presenters, so the camera had some trouble coping. For the future I'll invest in a higher resolution webcam and also make sure the lighting conditions in the venue are less contrasty.

Had a great convo with Jason Bedell about TeachMeets and Dan Callahan about edcamps. Thanks you two! I'm finishing up an article about unconferences. I can find plenty of background for the edcamp model, but less detailed info about the teachmeet model. Can someone aim me in the right direction? I'm especially looking for a TeachMeet template/how-to similar to the one Mary Beth Hertz posted on Edutopia about edcamp: http://bit.ly/bN7yYi Thanks to all, M.E. (edcamp Cincy)

Why do we do what we do?

How much of what we do as educators is done because that’s the way it’s always been done? I imagine that whenever these things, that we do out of a respect for history, were originally executed, there was probably a reason for it. My question is with our society and all of the systems within it changing so rapidly over the past few decades, are those original reasons for doing things a certain way still valid? How would we know unless we re-examined the things that we do in education and see if…See More
