This weekend several Coöp folks and National Writing Project (NWP) friends will meet-up and facilitate conversations at EduCon 2.4 which is a conference that aims to host conversations about technology in service of learning, learning spaces, and learners (I think).
Christina Cantrill, Paul Oh, Kirsten Olson and I will start a conversation called “Permission to Speak” on Saturday, January 28th, 2012, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM ET.
Mennoo Rami and I will host a hack jam on Sunday, January 29th, from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM ET.
At each event, I will broadcast on UStream, as well as host a Google+ hangout so that people can join the session from afar as virtual participants. (In fact, Paul Oh will be facilitating from afar, as well).
The F2F conversation will be captured (hopefully) by my “place” in the hangout, and thus be broadcast as part of the hangout captured from my desktop.
I will send out hangout invites via Google+. Be sure to connect with me there if you’d like the chance to join in a hangout. You can connect from a computer or mobile device with a Google+ app installed.
You can watch the sessions on UStream at the Coöp channel if you have a PC.
If you have a Mac, use the link below to open a pop-up video to each session. Use the play control at the bottom of the window to begin streaming.
Just remember to mute the video if you join the hangout
Please join in the fun, Coöp community and friends! More on what to expect can be found here.
Update: I broadcasted the ceiling today – sorry! Will do better tomorrow for the hack jam!
