The other conference, though it's not really a conference but more like a gathering, will assembly Canadian educators who work for change at the grass roots level. This unusual education summit is not happening in one of our fabulous cities but in Algonquin Park in Northern Ontario. The site looks fabulous and the people attending will surely be committed educators, such as yourself! It's called UnPlug'd and just the idea of being able to hang out with other teachers/thinkers/change agents, under the pines and in a canoe is really exciting. When I shared this with a friend recently, he said, "You, unplugged? Impossible!" We might be off-the-grid and so unplugged (temporarily) from the web but we will be plugged into something else equally exciting - the desire to improve education for the sake of the kids. It's always about learning and that always brings us (me) back to them.
So I'm really hyped. This summer will be good. Maybe I'll see you in Boston?
