Twitter @ ECOO


It’s another #FollowFriday on Twitter and I just sent out a tweet showing my list of Ontario Educators.  Great people, great reads when you follow them.  I would encourage you to follow them all.

As I posted the message, I also started to think about the ECOO Conference next week.  The Educational Computing Organization of Ontario hosts this conference annually.  It’s a very special year for ECOO as it celebrates its 30th annual conference.  That’s quite a record for longevity for anything.

Things have changed over the years.  For those who are regular attendees, you probably have great memories of events good and bad.  Remember the year the power went out during a heat wave?  Remember the Regal Constellation?  Remember Icon presentations?  Remember OISE?  Take a walk through ECOO history at this link.  It is great to see how time and technology has morphed through the years.

I’ve been a regular attendee, presenter, and now on the exhibit floor working the OSAPAC booth.  It’s always great to meet old friends and new friends at this event.

At the OTF Professional event last weekend, we started to lay very informal plans for a meetup of Twitter users at ECOO.  Conference organizer @brendasherry has promised to book us a room.  Somebody, somewhere decided to call it twECOO.

But, who’s coming?  As I posted my #FollowFriday list, it occurred to me that we could turn this Twitter list stuff into something productive.  So, I’ve created a new list called ECOO-Twitterers.  I would encourage all ECOO attendees who use Twitter to get themselves added to this list.  I haven’t quite figured out how to automate this yet so I’ve created a Google Form where you can add your details, if you are so inclined.  There is a little option to indicate whether or not you’re interested in attending the meetup.

If you’re headed to ECOO, please consider adding yourself to the list.  You can do so by clicking here.  I’ll look forward to seeing you there.
