Two Edu Conferences This Weekend: CUE and IL-TCE

If you’re an educator attending CUE in Palm Springs, California or IL-TCE in Chicago, Illinois this weekend, come by and say hello! Adam and I will be attending these two conferences and presenting sessions on Wikispaces and wikis in education.

At CUE, I’ll be at the Open Source Pavilion and presenting a session on wikis at 11:30 AM on Friday, March 2nd. This session is in the Open Source Pavilion Exhibit Hall.

Adam will be presenting at three Spotlight sessions at IL-TCE. He’ll be talking about using wikis in the classroom at 9:45 AM and 11:45 AM, and about advanced community building at 12:45 PM. All three sessions are located in Zanies Comedy Club in the conference center – no joke!

As always, we’ll both bring along extra-large helpings of free wikis for educators. Hope to see you there!

    Adam:

    I just left your session at IL-TCE and I want to thank you for renewing my initial passion and excitement for wikis. Three years ago, I lost interest because of a number of issues: security, ease of use, and a host of others.

    For me, I simply shifted to using a blog to accomplish blogs stuff and collaborative aspects (with a little tweaking). However, your presentation showed me that those initial problems are long gone and that a service like wikispaces is nearly perfect for educators.

    Bottom Line: educators need both wikis and blogs and I appreciate your presentation opening my eyes to something I previously closed off after years of frustration.

    My husband caught your wiki presentation today at CUE…We never got to the CUE Ball because we have been experimenting with setting one up. I am excited about using it for our March school-wide project.

    Adam:

    I have not ever used a wiki, and was pleased with a test page where I was to be able to embed a video stored on your site with controls.

    This is specifically what I needed to do. Next step is to add rss feed and then have my students build a wiki – their own study guide and learning site where they can discuss with each other.

    What fun!

    I’m so glad you were at IL-TCE. I’ve started creating my wiki for teacher presentations. It’s so easy and will be great to eventually use with students too. Hope you’ll consider coming back to IL-TCE next year. We start planning the next conference in just a few short weeks. Someone from the committee will be in touch.
