For all of us in Arizona—we got the announcement yesterday, so mark this date on your calendars. There are PodCamps in lots of cities, though, so check it out wherever you live!
What is it? PodCamp AZ in an unconference. That means it is free, the speakers are you and me and our techy neighbors who are willing to share their expertise. Jan and I drove up to Phoenix for it last year and it was well worth the drive. I got some invaluable information on how to better use blogs with my students. We attended sessions on social media, on creating videos. The atmosphere was informal and fun, with lots of time to learn and share.
Speakers will address emerging trends and best practices on everything from print and radio to mobile, interactive web, and in real life information exchange. During PodCamp sessions, attendees are free to drop in, listen and learn about what is relevant to their needs, and if they choose to, move on to other sessions. You can also become an interactive part of the experience by sharing your knowledge as a speaker or stimulating ideas and asking questions as an active attendee.
