Logo and Branding
What specific branding should go with any resources we build?
Do we have a logo to use for the bootcamp?

ISTE and TIE branding will be included in spaces
Donella/Anita and Karen will forward on the appropriate logos on to Michelle for use in any online spaces
Any branding created/used for materials that include the ISTE logos should be run by Anita and Donella first

Send any materials, links, etc to Donella and Anita so they can cross-promote

Virtual sessions updates
Speakers, dates, and times are listed on the site here - all virtual sessions will be hosted via Elluminate and Classroom 2.0
Donella and Anita are working with Steve Hargadon to have Jeff Piontek host a virtual event prior to the Bootcamp.  We will integrate the information about this event into the Leadership Bootcamp information.
Steve will moderate and archive these events. Alison Saylor is the point person for communicating with the virtual speakers.

Virtual conversations updates
Ning site for Bootcamp conversations is currently being built.
Initial invitation for moderators has been sent (Karl, Laura and Ben) and they are working with Bud to pre-populate the site with resources and conversation starters.  This site will be the primary landing page for Bootcamp links.
Advertising on site - ISTE will pay for the advertising to be removed.
Anita and/or Donella will join the site and be given admin access so that they can enter billing information.
Go date for Ning site will be no later than March 3 (earlier if possible)

Donella and Anita will cross promote this site also- make sure to send any info to them.

Facilitated Roundtable reconfiguration
New configuration will allow 60 minute sessions following each of 2 breakouts
Initial invitation for facilitators (1 per 10-15 participants) - will initially invite 20 people and add additional facilitators as needed.

Registration information.
Registration available beginning February 17. ISTE will update the verbiage on the Leadership Bootcamp page on their site to reflect the current description. Updated description that will be used is on the front page of this planning site.

Question will be included on registration for Bootcamp to determine which audience participants identify with (Admin/IT/Teaching and Learning)
Is there a way to determine if people are registering as part of a team?

Assumption will be made that all participants will bring a laptop or other device that will need wireless connectivity - wireless infrastructure for the day will be designed accordingly.

Karen will develop menu for lunch with ISTE. Plated lunch will be preferred to buffet style so that participants can engage in talks more quickly. Michelle requests steak and brownies be on the menu. (And caffeine - lots of caffeine)

-Keynote - settle on someone today? ask Anita what the expertise of choice 1 is, then ask that person or fall back to choice 2. Ask one for lunch and one for AM keynotes for best possible combination. Anita will ask for keynote AM for Bootcamp. She will also ask choice 2 after we know about choice 11 acceptance. Anita will take care of invites. Ask choice 2, arrange or tie together different stories of successes, less intense lunch and moderate at end of day.

-Online component, Bud Hunt, Steve Hargadon and Illuminate. Yet to discuss the capture of Bootcamp day elements
get at least 3, possibly four, also a Ning space for discussion of online piece. Leadership bootcamp has it's own identity for continuing event own space now. 

-Publicity - Iste's ideas on publicity aside from their site, I think we should hit local in Colorado but in some way reach out nationally, perhaps a seperate email to ISTE attendees list?  Will present at Colo conversation in Feb to Colorado people.

Dec 21 Phone Meeting

posted Dec 21, 2009, 8:51 AM by Michelle Bourgeois   [ updated Dec 21, 2009, 3:38 PM ]


Decide on Keynote Speaker
  •     Chris Lehmann would be a good choice for tie-in to ISTE conference
  •     Bud Hunt is top local choice and also has a national voice.
  •     Will wait until January to finalize and invite based on outcome of ISTE Keynote poll.

Make and take planning
  •     Framework for the plan is posted on the "Make and Take Planning" page on the left.
  •     Will design the plan to follow the framework of the day
  •     Will include spaces and suggestions for related ISTE sessions and exhibitors
  •     Should live online - (Google Sites or Docs templates? Wiki?) Will work to incorporate this into the pre-conferences spaces conversations.

Fill in contributors frame with participants

  • Michelle will begin to place people into the "Contributors Frame" to the left
  • First slots offered to names who can bring the most to the conversations
  • Follow up with others to fill in the gaps

  • Goal is to have the grid completed in very early January
  • Moderators for the Vertical chats can be added as needed depending on the number attending
  • Also need people to help keep the pre-conference online conversations moving
  • Some of these roles may overlap
Pre conference online spaces (read notes there)
  • Will work with Bud Hunt to develop spaces that meet the goals outlined
  • The online spaces will be branded with "Leadership Bootcamp" and then sub-branded with ISTE 2010, TIE, and corporate sponsors so the continuity of the project is independent of the organization and sponsorship
Pre-conference events
  •     March is a good time to start with pre-conference events
  •     Majority of people register by end of March, May is the time when people start using the planning tools
  •     Monthly events will help to build the conversations and thinking prior to the day event. Will try to spread out the pre-conference sessions between all 3 audiences and 4 breakout session themes
  •     ISTE will begin early marketing in January.
  •     Word of mouth marketing will be important - getting our breakout speakers and others on board early is key
  •     Patrick Mount will be the representative for TIE's marketing
  •     Friday meet and greet with vendors will be framed around local vendors and supporters of TIE
Next meeting - Sometime January 8. Use the link to select the times you can be available.

Participants Alison Saylor, Michelle Bourgeois, Karen Ortiz, Elizabeth Hubbell (McREL) Anita McAnear, ...

Discussion about possibly conflicting events: Edublogger, ISTE preconference sessions, Leadership Bootcamp

Promotion: blurb in ISTE flyer, email lists from prior TIE participants, ILT listserv?, Regis @ DU?,

Here is a recap of the phone meeting tonight. Please help me clarify if I forgot anything.

Next meeting - tentative, November 18th at 4pm, but if the 17 or 19 is better, we can work for that. I'd like you to reply on your availability so we can set up the call. I'll give you all a reminder Monday the 16th with conf call info.

__ Kim McMonagle: Yes, Nov 18 (Nov 17 and 19 are also good)
__ Elizabeth Hubbell: Yes
__Nancy White - Not available (CAL Board meeting) but still interested in being involved!
__Jayne James - Yes Available and can also do Nov 19 5 pm

We addressed Alison's concern over conflicting events. The workshops will take place Sat, Sun, and during the conference. Educon will probably not be an issue since the audience is not the same. Not sure that is true - but people always need to make choices with so much going on at national conferences. -Nancy White 11/13/09 2:05 PM 

ISTE will market this event, it is already mentioned on the first flyer.

Donnela asked several clarifying questions based on the Google doc

I believe she and Anita now have an better understanding of our vision for the day.

We need to make sure we have all presenters focus on the NETS communication and collaboration standard specifically.

We will work with an instructional designer Jayne James, I have shared the Google doc with her

We will be assigned a program coordinator Lauren Lucas as soon as plans are more developed.

Karen has shared a marketing idea list at:
UCD ILT list server suggested, I'll contact Brent Wilson about his, I will also contact Regis, DU, UNC and CU for advertising to their tech ed programs. How can CASL get involved - help spread the word?  -Nancy White 11/13/09 2:07 PM **CASL is on the list of Marketing contacts. I put Heidi down as the CASL contact. Is there someone else who would be better, Nancy?  Stevan Kalmon is the Regional Marketing rep. - Karen 11/18/09

Our TIE board contacts are Erin Magley and Mike Herr. Karen Oritz will keep in the loop. Randy Stall in loop but very busy right now at work. ** Kim McMonagle will also help.

Karen and Anita will look for presenters that fit in to our grid when they work through the workshop and conference sessions next week.  **Kim McMonagle is offering to present.
** I think a combination of national and statewide presenters/facilitators will draw in a wide variety of stakeholders (remember, if we can't fill it, we don't have it.) In the process of going through proposals, we came up with a few names of national people who may be good.

Jayne James, ISTE Senior Director of Educational Leadership, will have additional suggestions and insights. Obviously, we need to find the best match(es) for the program offerings. Karen 11/18/09

Alison will schedule future calls and initiate them with reminder calls in the future to avoid confusion.
