My quick thoughts, back stage, and rants as I try to Teach kids about the Web while learning how to help others build a better Web.

Not sure how I feel about @digitalpromise taking over @edcamp....kinda the opposite goals of an unconference ie start working in credentialing and teacher prep....the entire point was old PD was broken. https://www.edsurge.com/news/2020-07-06-digital-promise-brings-edcamps-into-its-tent

@ajpodchaski It ain't a competition, thoughtful conversation born of cross pollination. Let's stop defining search of knowledge as one of false scarcity. Twitter like , just vote with tweets instead of feet

Greg McVerry

I love the model, here with @edcampct our goal for 202 though is to make the community more year round so the personalized PD isn't a day. Community is the Curriculum

Greg McVerry

But more important for is C: A growing body of research suggests these types of networks are the only types that survive. Look at past examples listserv, , , . Groups that do survive, groups that talk fade away

I 100% agree with the regional conference models but thik we can do it with a national approach. We can use the model. Still may require institutional support (rather than soft money like edcamp) @vconnecting

@geonz Agree conferences don't need to be gigantic carbon suck holes and expensive. Let's keep regional. We organize @IndieWebCamp across the globe and these are free. Same with . Grab a friend, find wifi, start a movement.

@paulbogush We will wait and see on Friday. Is it edcamp or twitter popularity declining? both? look at your CT tweeter list it isn't as active. It is also summer rapidly declining...hope teachers disconnect before the start of year

Greg McVerry

Yes: Excited to get back to after missing last year. We have big goals to bridge the @edcamp and building blocks across our schools. Time to get students to finish the sentence, "My url is.."

Greg McVerry

And the name badge is a perfect metaphor why unconferences like @edcamp and are better choices for us to make.

You, not the vendor hall nor the professional organization are the target audience.
