It has been such a fun and crazed two days so far, and I wish I had more time to blog about the buzz here, but this ought to give you a sense of what’s happening. The US Department of Education is here talking about an interesting vision for “School 2.0″ that it’s been working on, and as you can see by the picture, they seem like they are on the right track. I actually had the chance to talk with Tim Magner yesterday who is the Director of the Office of Educational Technology for the DOE and he is really passionate about starting conversations about different models and different visions for schools. I can’t tell you how pumped I am about that development. There will be much more to come on this topic I’m sure, but thus far, NECC has turned out to be feeling very much like a pivotal moment for these tools. 1,200 people in a podcasting session yesterday, tons of people blogging and posting pictures, just a very positive and progressive feel to it all.
