=>Experience Math 2.0 activities. For example, how close are you to being the average traveler to this conference? Find out by participating (at the booth) in a web-based crowdsourcing activity which involves Google Maps & Spreadsheets to do it's algebraic magic. See my blog entry about this activity.

=>Find out more about how Web 2.0 serves as a platform for a new way of learning math (from the “Inside Out.”)

=>Scheduled events will be posted at the booth. For example, meet prominent math educator bloggers who are taking professional development to the next level by collaborating online and transforming their classrooms taking advantage of emerging (and some old) technologies.

=>The CLIME booth will be HQs for all blogging, tweeting and podcasting about the conference.

=>Here are links to a detailed list of all technology sessions at NCSM and NCTM.
