Good Ideas: #EdTechCalNYNJTuesday, April 14, 20158:56 PM
I was sad to miss the first Twitter hashtag chat for #EduAfterHours last Thursday. I follow all of the moderators and like what they have to say but I play frisbee on Thursday nights so I couldn't make it. I was thrilled to leave my game to a barrage of notifications for mentions, even though I wasn't there. I eagerly caught up on the chat and stumbled upon a million dollar idea:
Is there a PD/Conference schedule or calendar anywhere for local conferences in NY/NJ? @wkrakower @AJBianco

@MissRaskin happens to be my best friend Dani, a wonderful Social Studies / Special Ed Teacher, and I thought her idea was a great one.
We've spent so much time researching conferences, professional development opportunities, and #edcamp schedules. Why isn't there one resource for all things #edtech in the area? It seems so simple.
One calendar. One site. Crowdsourced, collaborative, and public. And so, we made one...
