PLAYDATE Los Angeles began as the final project for my Innovative Educator Advanced Studies Certificate program. The program culminates in each student creating a project that shares innovative technologies with a wider audience. After learning about PLAYDATEs on Twitter, I got very excited because I knew this was what I wanted to do. I can't tell you how often I have been introduced to something new and then not had the time to play with it so I could learn enough about it to actually do something with it.
After deciding to move forward, I was speaking to Jennifer, who immediately signed on to the project. (Thanks, Jennifer!) We had our first meeting today and hammered out the initial details. We are going to be looking for a few more people to join the leadership team, and we need to finalize a date and a location. We have some tentative dates in mind, and are going to be conducting a Twitter poll to see which one might lead to better attendance. We are also going to need to find a corporate sponsor or two. All in good time.
We are thrilled to be embarking on this journey, and we hope you will join us!
