Here in this part of the world, NECC seems a long way away and very few of my blogging network will be on hand for this local event but Adelaide's own CEGSA (Computers in Education Group of South Australia) conference starts tomorrow and it's been my first look from an insider's viewpoint having joined the committee earlier this year. For me, it's really a matter of be quiet, look and listen and help out where possible and a real eye opener about how much volunteer work goes from hard working educators to make it come together.
Tonight I have to hone my resources for my involvement in two presentations and two workshops - in fact, apart from the keynotes, I'll only be able to check out two other presentations for the two days. I'm particularly looking forward to Stephen Downes virtual keynote, beamed in from his Canadian evening.
Full marks to Jason Plunkett for building a wikispaces site for the event - I hope that it is a case of "build it and they will come". For me, I hope a few people come to my presentations.
