Two years ago, I found podscsts of NECC’s sessions on iTunes: Choose your own Adventures with Wikis, Geography and interactive maps from NASA and the Coast Guard, many sessions were available as free downloads (I don’t know if they are still there, but if they are, I highly recommend them – try searching in iTunes for NECC or ISTE and see what comes up). I enjoyed listening to them while we cleaned the boat and thought about attending this conference that seemed so great. Last summer I have no idea why NECC wasn’t part of my travel plans but I again listened to several of the presentations online and thought about attending. With that as the backdrop, when one of my administrators said they would like me to attend NECC, I jumped at the chance and today’s the day. Keynote is in a little over 9 hours and I need to make some big decisions about which sessions I’ll attend as my itinerary is filled with conflicts of several that look interesting.
With that, I brought the Mac (sorry favorite Dell, better battery life), am cross-referencing which sessions will be podcast and offered via video later, and getting ready for what I hope will be a great conference. I will blog about the sessions I do select and we’ll see what happens.
It is a beautiful day here in San Antonio – this trip may inspire me to share some pictures on the blog (I have a great picture from the entertainment at last night’s minor league baseball game – the San Antonio Missions v the NW Arkansas Naturals, you’ll be please to know the home team won)… now I should figure out how to do that too. No time to sleep, again. 🙂
