How about an unconference for educational technology?

Jeff Jarvis on BloggerCon. “I’ve wished… (Via Scripting News.) Dave Winer wrote an essay on the unconference… here he links to one of the comments… many of which are worth perusing. Despite how much fun it was to present at the CUE conference, I’d like to the OCDE Educational Technology department incorporate these philosophies into its events, if not actually host an unconference. I’d still like to do a read/write web focused k12 hypercamp, too. Of course, the OCDE is not holding me accountable for such events, so these remain on the back burner… but somehow the back burner ideas are managing to find their way to the front in our department, which is going a long way toward making the long hours worth it.
