This Saturday is BarCamp Memphis. It’s a great group of people and a great opportunity to learn more about social media, technologies to support learning, and information technologies.  I’m planning to be there, and I hope you’ll find a way to make it, too.  They’ve got “pay what you can” and “student” categories for pricing.

Here’s the “unconference” description:

BarCamp isn’t just a Web 2.0 conference. It’s an unconference. What does that mean, exactly? Well… that’s up to you.

The entire event will be crafted by attendees (you), so you can learn about the specific technologies, trends, gadgets you really want to learn about – and hear from the people you find interesting. We’ll be voting first thing in the morning to determine the day’s sessions. Totally crowd-sourced!

2 Thoughts on “More learning means more to learn.

  1. I hope BarCamp Memphis goes well. This will be the second year that I attend BarCampCHS (Charleston, SC). I look forward to presenting on “Making the Transition: Are teachers prepared for the wave of technically advanced students?” If it is anything like last year it will a great time all around.

  2. @Andre, I hope you have a blast in C-town. I am originally from SC (Go Tigers!), and Charleston is one of my favorite cities in the whole world. 😉 Be sure to share your slidedeck with us when you’re done. 🙂
