We have been working on setting a date and securing a location. I spoke to the principal of my local high school, who was in favor of hosting the PLAYDATE, but it turns out we may not be able to do it there. The district is in the process of upgrading the wireless access across all the district schools, and there may not be any guest access until the project is complete, some time during the beginning of the 2013-14 school year. Obviously, not having guest wireless is not an option. I would still like to have the event at the school, since it is a venue I am familiar with and I know it will meet our needs. We are looking into the possibility of some kind of temporary wireless solution for out of district teachers, but we will also be considering alternate venues.
On the plus side, I have also gotten wonderful feedback from the teachers I have spoken to about the project, including Linda Yollis. If you don't know Linda, she is an excellent teacher and blogging guru. You can follow her on Twitter @lindayollis. She is excited about having a PLAYDATE in our area and may be available to help out. Fingers crossed!
