As excited I am about attending NECC, I am very excited about Edubloggercon. I am looking forward to being re-energized with people that I follow, listen, and talk to. Many of these are on the forefront of educational change. I admire the work they do and look forward to meeting and discussing with them. I am also looking forward to finally meeting those with which I have communicated frequently or infrequently but have never met. Mostly:
Candace Hackett Shively - who has tirelessly dealt with site reviews for Teacher's First that need more work
Vicki Davis - I have followed Vicki for the last 2 1/2 years when I started reading her blog. Since that point, she has helped many educators with web 2.0 tools and I consider one of the biggest cheerleaders for those of us in the trenches trying to make change.
There are so many others that I will include in links later. There are also many others that I have met before who continue to shape my journey. All of them collectively make the journey worthwhile.
