Inaugural WordCamp Ed to be hosted at CHNM

On Saturday, November 22, 2008, CHNM will host the very first WordCamp Ed, a WordCamp conference focused entirely on educational uses of the WordPress blogging and content management software in schools and universities. Organized in partnership with the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship at Georgetown University, the one-day event will feature a morning of pre-planned speakers and a barcamp-style afternoon of smaller discussion sessions. Registration is free at the WordCamp Ed blog.

WordCamp Ed builds on the success of last spring’s THATCamp, reinforcing CHNM’s growing importance as a gathering place for the educational and cultural technology communities.
