Arrived in San Antonio yesterday afternoon about three hours later than planned thanks to a late flight out of Dallas. Usually, I like to take the first afternoon/evening I arrive at a conference to register, walk around the conference center and surrounding area to get acclimated, meet up with people I know, and then start meeting people I don’t know. Because of the delay, I was able to register and then meet up with some people from our state association. After that, we walked around the Riverwalk to get dinner — I felt like I was going to collapse, I was so tired. Oh, and did I mention it’s a bit hot in San Antonio? Yikes.
So, this morning was “acclimation time.” Met some very nice people from Texas, and then I volunteered at Presenters World for three hours. While volunteering, I met some more great people from Texas (TCEA) and talked to them about using the NECC Ning and Twitter (Hi, Karen and Katie!).
Haven’t decided yet whether I’ll live blog any sessions, or maybe just take notes and then post later. For now, maybe I’ll just conclude with the fact that NECC can be so overwhelming… so much to do, so much to learn. It’s a great opportunity, though, for educators of all levels and experiences.
