Resources from @EdCampNYC at @The_School today

The Organizers

So, EdCampNYC happened. Yes, we will organize another. No, we will not start offering tickets months in advance. I’m grateful we had a more intimate crowd than I expected, but our costs would have been greatly lessened had all of the anticipated attendees arrived. The session board filled up seriously fast, and it was great to see all the tweets and resources shared throughout the day.

Had I not been an organizer, I would have led a session on Google Apps, integrated projects, paperless science journals, social networking in the classroom, professional development, media tools, offered a tour of the school and discussed the intentions of The School at Columbia University. Additionally, I would have been able to remain in a session for more than a few minutes and benefited from the conversations happening on three different floors. For next year, I am hoping to recruit some students to help at registration, act as hall monitors and tech support, and maybe lead a session on some of their projects.

A million thanks to our sponsors and everyone who organized, participated, and led sessions!
