NECC Reflections

While I have already wrote a few things about NECC at my blog, I just wanted to say here that I enjoyed joining some conversations with fellow CR2.0 folks at the Birds of a Feather session at NECC in San Antonio!

Hearing the exchange of ideas was great, as was the encouragement to use this tool. It really does make a difference to see real people and hear real advice and concern, and I hope "we" continue to meet both at NECC and elsewhere.

I know this is true, how can I even see what the possibilities are if I have never even tried it?

Listening In

I'm working on a curriculum project, Plugged-In to Nonfiction with my literacy mentor, Janet Allen, this week, so I was not able to go to San Antonio for NECC. However, I have been dipping in as often as possible and I was thrilled to listen in to Chris Lehmann's session this afternoon.
