Organizers from IDEA democraticeducation.org and IDEC idec2013.org join us on this episode of TTT. This is the first of a series of ongoing conversations. Join us for Part 2 of Planning for IDEC on Wednesday, May 8 at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
On this episode, we share/converse/think aloud about the IDEC conference coming up on August 4-8 at Colorado University, Boulder.
IDEC, now in its 21st year, is hosted by teams of educators from different countries and continents. This is the first time in ten years that it has been held in the U.S. Democratic education is not a type of school or research-based practice.
It isn’t one kind of learning program or philosophy. It is a frame. There are thousands of people and organizations around the globe engaged in democratic education. IDEC 2013 is for all of them.

We launched badges.p2pu.org at the DML Conference in Chicago last week to an amazing response. Folks were very receptive to our project-based and feedback-driven approach. Here’s a bit of a walkthrough on what that means, and how you can use it.
