Need a Conversation?

The 2014 Bring IT, Together conference will soon be here.  It promises to be three days of learning and connections that you can get nowhere else.

Despite that, there might be a topic or two that you want to explore deeper.  Or, perhaps you want to have a conversation with someone new?

Last year, the conference committee set aside an area for those types of conversations.  In the best spirit of the unconference, it was a place to sit and chat about technology, education, and goodness knows what else.  The area was at the back of the Exhibit Hall and we had chairs, scribble spaces, and more to facilitate the conversations.

We liked what happened – it was new for the ECOO folks.  We’re looking for a repeat this year. 

At the Niagara Falls Convention Centre, there’s a really cool gathering space that will be devoted to this.

Grab a coffee or a water and use the place to learn or continue the discussion.  (There will be a whiteboard so that you can sign in with your Twitter handle.)

We’re hoping that the need for ad hoc conversations will start at the conference and there will be a sign-up board for discussions. 

In advance though, the planning committee would like to get started on the scheduling of ideas.

To that end, they have created a form here so that if there’s a burning issue in your mind or just some connections or learning that you need, you can express your desires in advance.

This is YOUR area to extend the content of the conference.  Please use it!

One thought on “Need a Conversation?

  1. EdCamp Style – nice! One other thing I had wondered is whether there might be a stretch/mindfulness space in the centre – where people can just take a minute to breathe (in the company of others who might want to do the same) or do a little light stretching – without needing to go back to their hotel room.
