Top leading personalities in education technology will be talking all weekend at EduCon 2.2. in Philadelphia. Organizers want to stress the content of this year's EduCon. They've posted on the website created for the conference: "And it is not a technology conference. It is an education conference."
Most of the 76 sessions can be followed through Elluminate. But also on Twitter with #educon. Photos of the event can also be found here
