NECC 2007: Coming Ready or Not!

I can't believe it is almost here and that I am leaving Bangladesh in TWO days to fly more than half way across the world (yes, I have managed to take the long way around over the Pacific Ocean) to be in Atlanta in time for NECC 2007 in Atlanta!

This particular NECC is the most exciting one yet out of the past four I have attended (Seattle, New Orleans, Philadelphia and San Diego) because I am going to meet some very special people I have come to know through online activities this past year, including for the first time f2f my Flat Classroom colleague, Vicki Davis...and this is going to happen in 4 days only!

Tonight I am madly trying to finish off presentation material and other online things so that I will be truly ready to meet and greet, rise to the challenge of the commitments I have made without sounding like I know nothing and basically get organised. For some reason I have a lot of double bookings on my conference planner. Let me share the scenario with you. Oh, a special thank you of course to Steve Hargadon for creating the fabulous session tags for us bloggers and readers alike.

Here is what I am doing at NECC 2007 so far. As you can see I have a number of clashes but also a number of gaps to fill.
  • Saturday June 23: EdubloggerCon There are numerous sessions offered here including the one that Vicki and I are hosting:
Global Connections and Flat Classroom Ideals in a Web 2.0 World
(Tag: ebc07gcfc / Blog Posts / Blog RSS / Flickr / Flickr RSS)
Also, stay in touch with the conference by reading blogs (including mine) from these listed on the ISTE bloggers page. Also don't forget to be watching the Hitchhikr page for NECC and feeding your RSS feeder with all the tags you want.

I do hope if you are reading this blog and coming to NECC you will come and say hello at one of the above sessions! Don't be shy now.

Looks like you have a busy presentation schedule. I will enjoy just sitting and soaking it all in. See you Saturday.
