EduCon2.3 Reflections


Hi, I'm Shelley Krause, aka @butwait , and I am serving as an unofficial archivist again for EduCon2.3 . (I did this last year as well.)

I want to enable the continuation of the many conversations that have EduCon as their nexus and/or genesis. So as I come across EduCon2.3-related content, I'll be adding it here. If you have a wikispaces account, you should be able to make additions as well (I welcome your help!). Standard wiki operating procedure applies: Nothing is missing. You just haven't added it yet. Or just send me a tweet ( @butwait ) w/ the link and I'll try to make sure it gets added.

You can point people to this page by giving them this link:

Some of the folks who facilitated conversations at EduCon2.3 have posted their slidedecks and/or notes to the main EduCon2.3 site. Beyond that, I would welcome help thinking about how/whether to try to include other kinds of EduCon-related goodies here, e.g. archived Tweets (thanks, @colonelb !), tagged photos on Flickr (thanks, @kjarrett !), Hashalbum (thanks, @brueckj23 ) etc. Tweet me your ideas/ requests/ beefs?

Feeling grateful? Toss some cash into the SLA Experiential Education fund:
