UCET Conference Coming on Fast

The 2007 UCET (Utah Coalition for Educational Technology) Conference is coming up in 2 days. Even though preparations have been ongoing for months it has really snuck up on me. I will be presenting two full sessions on Friday, Podcasting in the Elementary Classroom and Blogging in the Elementary Classroom. I am planning to record them both and get them up on the feed sometime in the next week. I am also doing 3 Over the Shoulder sessions on Saturday, Google Docs/Spreadsheets,Creating a Podcast, Delicious & Furl. For anyone attending and blogging from the conference you can tag your posts with UCET07 or UCET2007.
