Go Social: Open It!

I was at an EdCamp the other day. If you’ve not been to one they’re basically free professional development gatherings where attendees design think their shared learning experiences.

Anyway, it happened that organizers encouraged the use of Twitter. But the location where the EdCamp was held blocked access to Twitter. I think it may have been available to attendees affiliated with the EdCamp host. But as EdCamp is open to anyone to attend this is an incomplete solution.

If you’re going to have an open exchange of ideas open it.

A suggestion: is it possible for EdCamp planners to arrange with their IT person to create a sandbox for the event? One where the Internet and Twitter to be accessible for the duration of the event?
