At the NAVCON2K4 conference we are going to explore the use of Blog technology as a means of increasing the impact of the conference. To this end we are developing the conference website around the Interact community software technology that also has a Blog built in.
We hope to do three things:
– introduce Blogging to those of the 1800 delegates who havenít yet encountered Blogs (they all get a Blog!)
– pull together conference keynotes, speakers, delegates, and presenters who already have Blogs before, during, and after the conference
– perhaps most importantly, we hope delegates will individually or as groups Blog their critical learning incidents from the conference and then review these in PD sessions when they get back to their schools
Through making the above possible, we are trying to increase the impact of the conference by easily enabling teachers to capture their thoughts as the conference progresses and review and reflect upon their learning individually and as groups when they return to their schools. So if you read this, are coming to the conference, and already have a Blog, then please send me your URL! Either leave it as a comment on my Blog or email firstname.lastname@example.org
