NECC Update - Wed 7.5.06

Arrived at NECC today, and have been quite impressed, not only by the number of attendees, but also by the number and quality of vendors in the exhibit hall. The selection of sessions is downright dizzying for any one hour period, on a wide variety of topics. I have been happy to see a large number of sessions incorporating open-source tools, some of which we use (or are thinking of using.) There are quite a few districts exploring the possibilities of open technologies. After seeing the state of blogging and e-portfolios at these sessions, however, I'm looking forward to demonstrating our teacher community on Friday - boy do they need something better!

I'll be serving on a variety of panels and other meetings as well while I am here. Will keep everyone posted with pictures, etc. as the days progress.
