I have been going back through some of my audio files recently and I found a really good conversation from Educon 2.1.
This conversation was from John Pederson‘s Session, The Networked Learning Manifesto: Welcoming Parents into the Conversation.
The participants that I recognize from the audio are:
There are many voices that I don’t immediately remember or recognize, however. Which is a little sad because there are a lot of really good voices in the room.
The original recording for the session is here, but I believe that the audio isn’t quite as good as this excerpt. There is also a follow up conversation at Parents as Partners.
This is the kind of conversation that I need to keep reminding myself to come back to. Some very smart things were said about going to where parents are and becoming a person to them first before trying to “get them on board” with technology and networked learning.
I hope that we all follow up on the promise that this conversation evoked.
