Alice Yucht suggested that people attending library related conferences report on 
the conference. So here goes... (I broke the post into two sections for lenght.

I attended the NECC conference in Philadelphia. NECC is the National Educational 
Computing Conference and is sponsored by ISTE (International Society for Technology 
in Education). You can learn more at the ISTE website and more about 
NECC in particular at

Next year's NECC conference will be in San Diego, July 4 - 7. Watch the ISTE Site 
for registration, you get a discount for registering early. If you have a chance to 
go, it is a very worthwhile conference.

At the conference I did run into several members of our community while wearing my 
LM_NET gear. Hopefully they will also have time to report. Some of our other 
members were presenters, Doug Johnson and Joyce
Valenza to name two.

While the conference focus is on use of technology in education, I estimate at over 
half of the sessions covered useful information that would still be useful without 
"technology". For example; Literacy (Information, Visual, and traditional reading 
and writing), Critical Thinking across the curriculum, and Leadership issues are 
issues that can be addressed with or without technology.

Some "techie" sessions covered things like podcasting, online learning, web page 
desgin and tech toys.

You can access the program guide, search for topics and see what sessions were 
available or do a search for topics of interest. Go to
click on program search. Many of the presenters have handouts available online and 
you can find those sites from the program guide. For example, one session;
The Good, the Bad, & The Ugly: School Library Media Center Web Pages has the 
handout and presentation available at;
