EduBloggerCon - Many Thanks, Teacher 2.0 T-shirts, and iPad2 and Blogging Contests #ISTE11

Saturday was a terrific day! Thanks so much to all who came, and especially to those who helped in any way.

There are some "Teacher 2.0" t-shirts left, and I'll have them at the ISTEUnplugged area starting this morning, along with the purple Blackboard Collaborate buttons (and my snazzy Teacher 2.0 wristbands!). The official word from Bb Collaborate is that they will be walking around handing out tickets for people caught wearing the button or the t-shirts, and then using those tickets to raffle off an iPad 2 on Tuesday at 2pm at the Blackboard booth (#303).

In other contest news, I'm in charge of a special contest related to the release of Blackboard Collaborate 11 (the new combined Elluminate and Wimba). It's called "Collaborate for Good." You propose how you would use a free Blackboard Collaborate room to make a difference for your school, your organization, your community, or the world. Ten 50-seat rooms will be given away. The contest site is now open at

If you're in Philly, I hope you have a great day and a great week at ISTE. If not, be sure to check the streaming session at
