Registration Now Open! PLAYDATE13

PLAYDATE13 - the conference that was born at 10,000 feet (see this post to learn more about that) is now open for registration! Also, thanks to Boston-based educator Tracy Sockalosky's go-getter attitude, we've added on a second city to the event! As such, PLAYDATE will be now be occurring simultaneously in both Chicago and Boston.

A new kind of conference. 
No presenters. No agendas. Just playing.
Explore the things you've never had time to explore. 
Saturday, February 9, 2013

This is a new kind of conference. Think about the last time you attended an EdTech PD, conference or other professional learning event. Oftentimes, we leave full of new knowledge and a list overflowing with new apps, programs and skills to try out. However, once we return to "the real world" many of us lack the time and support to actually try out all of these new tools. 

PLAYDATE13 is a space for us to come together and collaboratively explore these tools we've always wanted to learn more about. The concept is to invite educators from around the area to join together on one day, sit in a room for a few hours and just play. They will collaborate to learn about EdTech apps, programs and tools with one another. There are no presenters in the room, no experts and no agenda. Simply time to play, tinker, and explore. 

There will be a Google Doc circulated a month before the event for colleagues and fellow educators to fill in with tips, tricks and links to help support the exploration during the PLAYDATE sessions, but that's it! Join us on Saturday, February 9th to rediscover playtime.
