NECC, the National Educational Computing Conference, the world's largest educational technology conference for teachers and technology coordinators, recently closed in San Diego. As a gift for those of us who weren't present (or who were, but just couldn't take it all in), Anne Davis has provided a generous selection of links to some of the resources produced at the conference.
Elsewhere in the blogosphere, Will Richardson offers his thoughts on the conference dynamic and
[...] about the conversations that have to come before pedagogy. Here’s what these tools are. Here’s what they can do. Here are the first practices that are sticking. It’s about building the vocabulary and the context, which, for some, takes time.
Will closes with a comment regarding the productive conversations that take place outside of formal meetings (echoing David Warlick's sentiments), a phenomenon that Dave Pollard discusses in his post on "unconferencing" (see here for additional resources and discussion). I'm particularly fond of this quote (the concept of which Henry Jenkins discusses in greater depth here, and Kathy Sierra here):
The sum of the expertise of the people in the audience is greater than the sum of expertise of the people on stage.
