  3. Personal EduWin of the Week
    1. Scott: Seeing the final touches come together on the ICE Conference in Illinois for the end of this month.  It is almost all volunteers!  350 workshops and breakout sessions.  Fantastic keynote and spotlight speakers including Karen Cator.  
    2. Michael:My personal Eduwin this week was participating virtually in the Educon conference in Philadelphia. I attended the conference in person in 2009, and it was one of the best learning experiences of my life. This weekend, I participated in 3 sessions: David Jakes talked about a protocol for conversations about change called, “What If.” https://twitter.com/#!/micwalker/status/163326680813944832 Then later on Saturday,Chad Sansing, Kirsten Olson, Christina Cantrill, and Paul Oh facilitated a session titled Permission to Speak? Creating Communities of Advocacy in Education. http://educonphilly.org/conversations/Permission_to_Speak-Creating_Communities_of_Advocacy_in_Education This is very similar to some of the work we’re doing here, and well worth the time of anyone interested in the #Eduwin movement to check out.  Finally, I had the pleasure on Sunday of sitting in on Tyrone Kidd, Jeff Kessler , two students at Science Leadership Academy, along with instructor Marcy Hull discuss “Forging Student/Teacher Relationships in an Era of Shared Learning: Revisited. They presented on this topic as freshman, and shared how they learn along with teachers.  I had the pleasure of meeting Tyrone and Jeff 3 years ago at SLA, and they invited me to their session. I’ve been following their progress ever since. Some might know Jeff as @educoncierge! He’s quite an entrepreneur,. and definitely going places!
