NCTE 2009 (virtually)

The centerpiece of the virtual conference experience for the 2009 National Council of Teachers of English Annual Conference is the ning http://ncte2008.ning.com/ with 3558 members today. This is free and open to members and non-members alike. It even collects your twitter address in the setup; although, it doesn’t seem that the 140 character updates in the ning are feeding into twitter – what if it did and added hash tags?

Twitter users have been sorting out what the “official” hash tag will be and it looks like most will go with #ncte2009. #ncte09 or #ncte will be used too. NCTE used Twitter to promote the National Day of Writing with http://twitter.com/dayonwriting and garnered over 800 followers but only followed 1 thus missing out on the two flow of communication.

The NCTE Publications twitter is http://twitter.com/NCTE_Pubs.

It appears I will be able to catch glimpses of things from NCTE2009.  The ning will be especially dynamic if session presenters and attendees post videos, slides, podcasts, and blog. A few presenters have posted resources.

The Learning Lab will host a session on the redesign project for ReadWriteThink.org.  I asked for screenshots to be posted and received a speedy and positive reply.

Now I need to figure out how to contribute to the conference and not just receive the feed.
