It was this time last year that many of the folks in my PLN headed to Educon2.0. I had the pleasure of making the face-to-face connections with educators that I had been communicating with online for many months – some even longer. It really was a fantastic weekend.
I have to admit that I’ve saved something since that weekend. Something that I don’t usually do. In my wallet, for the last year, has been the fortune that I got at the Tai restaurant, Asia on the Parkway at the hotel many of us stayed at and will be staying at again this weekend.
I don’t know what really made me hang on to this one over others I’ve received. But I’m glad I did. It’s not just for me – it’s for all of you that have been on this journey with me. We work to develop our professional (or in some cases personal) learning networks, we work to share our resources (it is sometimes a lot of work to do so), we share our ideas, we share our ups and downs and what works and doesn’t work. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with so many of you. I’m disappointed that so many of you are not able to attend Educon2.1. But you too, are one of those people who goes places in life. So I’ll see you sometime soon.
