Hard Question: Do You Go to EdCamps for Swag?
As a planning team member of an edcamp, I saw the amount of time and effort that went into the acquisition of giveaways. I realize not all edcamps work hard at getting 'sponsors' but many I have been to have. Considering the amount of mental capacity and ma...

Help Us Find Them & Break the Silence >>>> I am not into the idea of personal branding for educators for a lot of reasons. What I am into is educators telling our stories and the stories of others. I love the opportunity to share what amazing things my kids...

A Call for Attending More Small EdCamps
Yesterday I attended #EdCampJoplin with my wife and met up with a few other attendees who go to several edcamps a year. Since this was the first year for this particular edcamp, I wasn't surprised to see it had a small group show up. This seems to be the no...

I use lists and that works for me. I can't imagine following as many as I do if I weren't using Tweetdeck. I can't keep up with my stream either. I do like to follow those who follow me because I never know when a new follower will become a new friend. 

In my post I wrote about the difference between network and community. You are choosing to foster a community on Twitter and I sure can't argue with that.  I try to do both, but that doesn't work for everyone. I have come to realize over the years that the only way to do Twitter wrong is by being a troll. :) 
I have something to confess: I finally did it: Something I've been meaning to do for a long time, but haven't mustered the courage until now: I committed twittercide. I was following over 900 people on Twitter. 'How?...

Thanks, +William Chamberlain. I suppose Twitter's accessibility is its greatest strength. You can make it as simple or complicated as you want, the important thing is to make meaning.

One Song: A Collaborative Spotify Playlist
I had an idea for a playlist. What if we made one that contained the one song that we most want to share with others. This isn't necessarily your favorite or the most popular song, but one you feel compelled to share. A song that everyone should hear at lea...

Do We Need a Consumer Movement?
There are plenty of resources and discussion online about the maker movement: MakerFaire , Newsweek , Time  and, of course, there is a #makered hashtag on Twitter for educators.  We are even making a big push for a maker space at EdCampMagic in June. My que...
