A Tale of Two Conferences

I am realizing very quickly that NECC is really two conferences.

In one conference, educators explain how they are pushing the boundaries of technology. Discussions take place. Thinking occurs.

In the other conference, corporations pitch their wares to the folks who make big money ed tech decisions. Deals take place. Sales occur.

In and of itself, this is not necessarily a bad thing.

But it is a thing.

And it is something that I've got to be aware of as I blog the next few days.
