As planned, I made my way to Omaha Nebraska on Saturday March 26 for Edcamp Omaha. To be exact, I headed North on Friday right after school, in order to attend he Tweetup that would kick off this event.

We have already explained the concept of un-connferences, and I cannot tell you enough how much I love this concept. It is probably one of the most motivating and empowering experiences I have participated in over the last 2 years.

As promised, I did learn a lot of new things, that I cannot wait to ntroduce to you in the classroom, and as promised, I did talk about us... I showed your work, and shared with the other attendees some of your projects, and the process that we are going through together, in our classroom.

I will not bore you with the lengthy details and reflections (I have a blog for that, and will probably use it soon), but I know that several of you have asked about the event and wanted to know more...

Here it is...
