I will be attending and presenting at the Texas Computer Education Association’s annual conference in Austin beginning tomorrow, February 9th through Friday, February 12th. I am excited, as always, about the opportunity to share and to learn from some fantastically talented educators. One event I am particularly intrigued by is the first Lone Star Edubloggercon, a conference-within-a-conference that will be taking place on Tuesday. The event, which runs from 9 a.m. through 4 p.m., will be a meeting of some outstanding leaders in educational technology in Texas to discuss issues that affect all of us, to share ideas and insights, to brainstorm, and to network with one another. There is still a little mystery about the agenda’s specifics, but I am confident that it will be highly worthwhile and a great learning opportunity. The event will be held upstairs at the convention center in the Mezzanine, and it is free and open to all interested parties. If you will be in Austin on Tuesday, this would be a great way to start off your week at TCEA. For more information, you can visit TCEA’s Ning site or the LS Edubloggercon wiki.
In addition to Edubloggercon, I will be attending sessions primarily focused on Moodle applications, interactive whiteboards, and, of course, Web 2.0. I will be presenting a session on new Web 2.0 sites and another on alternatives to PowerPoint. Both sessions will be streamed via my Ustream channel, as will as many other sessions by other presenters as I am able. You can also follow the conversation via my Twitter posts. Our instructional technology group will be posting observations and updates, as well, at the following sites:
