Here it comes ... !

As anyone can see from this lovely cabgirl's expression, Educon2.2 is almost here!
Educon is THE conference which takes place at The Science Leadership Academy in Philly. Attending this conference the first two years was like going to a party with my Tweets and having a blast! Not only does one think, mull, resonate, participate, converse, and write, but one gets to eat great food and drink coffee too!
If you haven't registered or reserved a room, hurry up! I won't be there, due to a mishap on some ice, but you could be. I would love to meet you in any of the sessions virtually.
The conference attendees read like a "Who's Who in the world of educational technology, integration, & collaboration." I know the world famous cabgirl, k12online conference convener, cohost of It's Elementary, winner of ISTE's Kay L. Bitter Vision Award for Excellence in Technology-based PK—2 Education , presenter of a NECC session entitled "Global Connections in the Primary Classroom", so much more, and world-class kindergartner educator Maria Knee (pictured above) will be in attendance.
Other names to rattle off? @lizbdavis , @khokanson , @joycevalenza , @paulrwood , @kjarrett (who took the above photo) , and of course @courosa (who speaks Ubuntu to my netbook!). I know I have left you out, and I'm sorry. There are just too many "Rockstars" to mention!

So sorry you won't be at Educon in person. I was really looking forward to meeting the lady under the hat. I will definitely keep an eye out for you in the virtual rooms.
