The Wejr Board » Rethinking the Traditional Conference Model | Nuts and Bolts of School Management | Scoop.it

The Edcamp model allows a large chunk of time in between sessions for participants to dive deeper into the ideas. In addition, the sessions themselves are not about being a spectator but more of being an active player in the discussions. At NAESP, not only was there no time to connect with others face to face, but there was no wireless and thus, the multiple conversations that often occur in backchannels on Twitter was lost. There was also no lunch provided… I am not disappointed in this because I had to reach into my pocket to buy lunch; I am disappointed because participants dispersed into their own schools and districts so very few opporunities were there to connect with new people (but as I said, I was privileged to be connected with others prior to the conference through SM). At one point, as Andy Hargreaves was discussing innovation, I leaned over to Jeff and said, “how innovative is getting 1000′s of educational leaders in one place and have them… NOT talk for 3 days?”.
