This sounds really cool…

but I’ll be cooking my little head off that day for a party in the evening.  Still, I hope it’s a success and that it happens again soon, because I would definitely go if the timing were different.  Thanks to the poster who posted it in my comments; I’m posting it here instead so it gets more notice.

EduCamp NYC is a gathering born from the desire by teachers, researchers, and technology specialists in K-12 education to share and learn in an open and powerfully-networked environment. All workshops are scheduled the day they happen, and are lead by conference attendees. Attendees are strongly encouraged to give a demo, run a session, lead a discussion, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer / contribute in some way to support the event. The people present at the event will select the workshops they want to attend. Pre-event planning will take place using the barcamp wiki. The event will be run using Open Space Technology. Conference notes and post-conference teamwork will take place using the curriculum collaboration tool, www.openplanner.org. RSVP at www.educampnyc.org
