After a few days of sending out Tweets, DMing people from around the state and having great friends spread the edcamp Detroit idea around, I feel like there are enough people interested to get this thing off the ground. For starters, check out http://edcamp.wikispaces.com/edcamp+Detroit to join the wiki and add your thoughts, ideas, information to the edcamp Detroit page. The more that want to help, the better.
I'm excited and scared to move forward now. I have never run a conference. I'm just a nerdy teacher, what do I know about conferences, especially "unconferences"? However, I know that I'm surrounded by amazing people and that together we can pull off a heck of an unconference and edcamp Detroit will be the envy of the edutech community.
Please stop by the wiki and offer any ideas or thoughts that you might have. You don't have to volunteer for anything or even live in the area to help out. Let's make edcamp Detroit an event to remember!
Yay! Congrats! I don't have a background in organizing huge conferences, but let me know if there's anything I can do to help support you...from afar, of course :)ReplyDelete
