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 had an excellent conversation with Bill Fitzgerald, from FunnyMonkey.com, OpenAcademic.org and the brand spankin new DrupalEd Distribution on how Drupal fits into education. The goal of the show was to create a cookbook for a conference site with Drupal — we got to it in the last 10 minutes! Thanks to Bill for his time and the excellent conversation.
