No, “Jeep” is not a web 2.o application. Jeep is our sound man and musician extraordinaire. He is featured on David Warlick’s latest post:

Aloha e Conference Participants:
Mahalo for joining us at this year’s KS Ed Tech Conference. We hope the conference exposed you to new thoughts and ideas, inspired you to embrace the tools of the read write web, and started you thinking about the road ahead – a road that David Warlick referred to as unpredictable? Good luck to you as you start blogging, podcasting, twittering and creating your very own personal learning networks. Remember what Will Richardson said, you have to learn about, adopt and use these tools before you can effectively teach and apply them with your students.
We will be updating our conference blog over the next few weeks so please be sure to check back often. Better yet, practice your RSS skills and subscribe to our blog to have the latest information pushed to you. Your thoughts, reflections and insights are important to us, so please post comments on our blog. And, most of all, please remember to fill out conference evaluations for each of the sessions you attended as well as the overall conference evaluation. You can access the online evaluation at: http://blogs.ksbe.edu/edtechconference/conference-evaluation/
For those who registered for the conference but were unable to attend, we hope to see you next year.
By the way, did you remember to email your partner from yesterday to share what you committed to doing? ☺

An excerpt from David Warlick’s blog:
“First of all, I want to say out loud how much I enjoyed the EdTech conference in Honolulu, and not so much for the obvious reasons. Much more because of the genuine and constant kindness that was shared by everyone. The hospitality that I received there, and everywhere I went in Honolulu warmed my soul.”

Mahalo to all of the speakers, volunteers, and especially the participants, for a wonderful experience.
Aloha and A Hui Hou.
Mark Standley closed our conference with a thoughtful afternoon keynote. What will our schools look like years from now?
David Warlick is giving his keynote right now, 8:35 a.m. (Hawaii Standard Time.) The audience is loving it….

Once there I simply clicked on the schedule tab.
Wow… by going through your schedule items and reading the
abstracts I discovered 22 references to Web apps I did not know
about. This astounded me. Whoever you are, or what ever your
organization you should be commended for forging such a provocative
program. How interesting that my personal interest in Sprout
technology brought me into your site’s promotion of pedagogy on the
same, and very similar, yet diverse subjects. Very well done, I’ll
bet your participants loved it! Mahalo!
