Today there are countless educational technology blogs powered by WordPress
. ISTEConnects is one these blogs, so I thought I'd attend WordPress camp this Saturday, May 16th
at the University of Baltimore Thumel Business Center. The camp will be attended by the regions most talented and influential devlopers as well as plenty of "newbs
" like myself. The BarCamp
model promotes the interaction of experts and novices so there is an incredible amount of collaborative learning going on.
That being said, if you'd like to ask these developers about WordPress, blogging, educational technology, or anything else you think they can provide valuable insight on please let me know. Leave a comment on the linked post here
with your questions and I'll attempt to find the experts that can answer them. I'll be armed with several Flip minoHD cameras
to capture these answers which I will then post for all of you.
Remember, these are the guys that have pioneered the "Web 2.0" movement and are continuing to create new technologies and philosophies that promote the free distribution of information so there is much we can learn from them. Aaron Brazell is the organizer and heavy lifter of WordCamp Mid-Atlantic. You can read a recent blog post about his experience with organizing WordCamp here.
