If you are in the Illinois vicinity, please consider attending and volunteering at the Illinois Technology Conference for Educators. The all star line up of keynote and spotlight speakers includes Chris Dede, David Warlick as well as noted education bloggers Will Richardson and Tim Lauer. I predict that this will be one of the best IL-TCE's yet and there will be many sessions geared towards the read/write web and web 2.0 stuff... for lack of a better term.
I'm in charge of recruiting volunteers for the conference as well. If you are interested in helping out, please read the following information and fill out the volunteer form. If you volunteer for three hours on a given day, you will receive a free registration for the remainder of the day!
Sorry we cannot accomodate volunteers who need housing and travel expenses covered. I had someone contact me the other day from Kenya wanting to volunteer! I guess the world is really becoming flat. :)
