Going to ISTE? Check Out Social EdCon

The ISTE 2012 conference is just a couple of months away. If you're thinking about attending or you are planning to attend, take note of Social EdCon. Social EdCon, formerly known as EduBloggerCon and organized by Steve Hargadon, is a day of conversations lead by educators for educators about a wide array of topics. Social EdCon, like EdCamps, is an unconference. That means that anyone who has a topic that they want to talk about can propose a session and if there is interest, that session happens. In the past I've joined in on conversations about iPads, Blogging, Wikis, and what education reform should look like.

This year's Social EdCon will be held on June 23 which is the day before the ISTE 2012 conference starts. Social EdCon costs nothing to attend. In fact, you don't even have to be registered for ISTE 2012 to attend.

On a related note, I'm only going to be able to attend the first two days of ISTE 2012. I hope to reconnect with old acquaintances and meet as many new people as possible. If you want to connect, I'll be the dork in the Blogger's Cafe at ISTE.
