Un-Conference Colorado

  1. Have you ever attended an Unconference?  If you did, what was your reaction to it? What worked? What didn’t work?
  2. Would you be interested in attending a Colorado Unconference?
  3. Would you be willing to help plan or create or participate in a Colorado Unconference?
  4. Would you attend an Unconference at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs?
  5. Would you prefer a conference during President’s Day weekend or Martin L King Day weekend? Or, does it matter at all when it might be?

    1. Web 2.0
    2.  Online Resources
    3. Technology Related Best Practices
    4. Social Networking

  1. I am an almost librarian, teaching high school math right now and finishing my MLS in the spring. Hopeful to be in the library next year! I haven’t seen anyone else reply yet, but I’m definitely interested in an Unconference!

    I have never attended an Unconference, but I am definitely interested in going to one! I’m not officially a librarian yet, but I would help with planning and logistics or anything else if that is needed. 😉 It doesn’t matter when it is, as long as I have time to get down to Colorado Spring. (I live in Lakewood.) I would love to know more about 21st Century Learning. Social networking and Web 2.0 are both subjects that I already feel comfortable with, but would not turn down the chance to learn more and discuss with others. Any current trends & issues for school libraries would be wonderful! I’m not in the library yet, but very anxious to learn more and network so that I can be a school librarian very soon. I’d love to hear more about this if it happens! Let me know if there’s any way I can help!

  2. Glad to hear from you, Courtney!

    I am hoping to get this planned within the next 2 months if all goes well. Right now we are working on securing the Broadmoor as our spot, which is a fabulous place if you have never been there.

    I appreciate your feedback on the possible topic. Tell all of your friends to get involved, too. You do not need to be a school librarian to attend. All types and shapes of educators are invited.

    I will take you up on your offer to help out! I need all the help I can get, since I have never been involved in and Unconference either. I’ll keep you posted on the progress so keep checking the blog for more info. You are on MY LIST now. 🙂

    My email is gilber.susan@comcast.net in case you need or want to contact me.

  3. Courtney -Love your enthusiasm! Thanks for offering to help!

    I am wondering if everyone is familiar with the term “uncoference.” Wikipedia has some good background information and links: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference You also might want to look at the wiki of perhaps the largest education un-conference, Educon: http://educon20.wikispaces.com/ and finally, our own local Colorado educon: http://colearning.wikispaces.com/Home+2009

    Susan -thanks for getting the ball rolling on this. I think this will be an incredible opportunity to bring together school librarians from across the state to discuss issues, brainstorm solutions, and network, network, network!
