Thanks to Brian Smith’s Flickr photos (and links he provided in the photo descriptions) I found the link today to the Ustream video of Will Richardson and Gary Stager’s closing keynote yesterday at the New York State Association for Computers and Technologies in Education conference. Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach gave me a heads-up earlier this week over skype about this event, but I wasn’t able to catch it live. How wonderful to be able to catch the archived version. I’m sure this was interesting!
Here is the direct link to the video, as well as an embedded version:
Play time is 1 hour and 7 minutes. I have not watched this yet but plan to over the upcoming Thanksgiving holidays.
Like several others educational technology conferences, the conveners of NYSCATE invited participants this year to utilize a variety of social networking technologies both during and after the conference. These included Twitter and Ning. I think utilization of online social networking tools like these should be considered “best practice” for educational conferences of all flavors (those explicitly focused on technology uses as well as others.) Way to go NYSCATE conference conveners, speakers and participants!
Someone did submit the 2007 NYSCATE conference to David Warlick’s Hitchhikr site, but for some reason the page doesn’t seem to be working. I think the reason is that someone submitted the tag “educational technology” instead of a tag like “nyscate07” for the conference.
If you have feedback on this video and discussion between Will and Gary, Will is looking for feedback on his blog, as is Gary who wrote up a nice summary with reflections of the event.
