I’m heading to Boston this afternoon for the Building Learning Communities conference put on by Alan November. I’ll be presenting two workshops, one a intro to ed blogging type and the other about new Internet literacies (which I’ve been using discussions here of late to frame.) I’m going to be interested to see how the second one comes out as it’s kind of new territory. (Always fun to push the envelope a bit.)
I’m really looking forward to meeting some of the people who have influenced my own teaching, like Kathy Schrock, and it will be good to see Steve Burt of Clarity Innovations (who is also presenting on blogging) and Amy Pearl, formerly of Intel who I met at the NECC conference in Seattle last year. That’s always one of the best parts of going to these…meeting other bloggers and educators who are willing to talk about their ideas and visions.
I think Clarity is planning on blogging the conference in some way, and I’ll hopefully be posting some observations here as well. Looks like a great lineup of workshops to choose from.

Will, you are correct about Alan’s conference being blogged. You can find the blog at http://november.edweblogs.org. Sorry I couldn’t make it myself, but someone had to hold down the fort. Have a great time in Boston with Steve and Amy!
