Thanks to Carolyn Foote over on library20.ning.com for sharing this info about the upcoming K12 Online Conference 2007. The conference will focus on web 2.0 tools and their role in learning. Presentations will be posted online. Several “live events” will take place online as well. Love that the theme is “Playing with Boundaries” – this certainly plays with the boundaries of how to attend a conference. Looking forward to this ‘happening’! (ok, happenings were so 1960’s or was it 70’s?)
Welcome to the K-12 Online Conference!
The K-12 Online Conference invites participation from all educators from around the world who are interested in innovative ways Web 2.0 tools and technologies can be used to improve learning. This is a FREE conference run by volunteers and open to everyone, no registration is required. The conference theme is â€œPlaying with Boundariesâ€. The 2007 conference begins with a pre-conference keynote the week of October 8, 2007. The following two weeks, October 15-19 and October 22-26, forty presentations will be posted online to the conference blog (this website) for participants to download and view. Live Events in the form of three â€œFireside Chatsâ€ and a culminating â€œWhen Night Fallsâ€ event will be announced. Everyone is encouraged to participate in both live events during the conference as well as asynchronous conversations.
