Social Technology and Education Conference: Aug 14th

Will be headed to Massachusetts in August for the 'Social Technology and Education' one day conference at Harvard. Looking forward to it as I haven't been back up in the Boston area in a few years and have some dear friends to catch up with.

Here's a link to the conference info site and here's a blurb explaining what's going on:
This conference is a free one-day event where attendees can learn about how social technologies can be used to create and support communities of learning. Anyone who works in education or is interested in learning more about these technologies, and how they can be used in high schools, colleges, and universities. Students can also attend if they want to listen or be on a panel talking about social tools.

I plan to be presenting a short workshop on using Twitter in the classroom. It will cover using Twitter and several Tweet apps to create personalized collaborative reference bibliographies, using Twitter in real-time mentoring, and using Twitter as an assessment tool in the classroom.

  1. Is there any chance that some form of your presentation (any of the presentations) will be available online after the conference? I would love to attend and am especially interested in your Twitter workshop. But, alas, I will be on the other end of the country for a different conference.
