I’m sorry that I’m just posting this. The K-12 Online Conference is in full swing with many fabulous learning opportunities. The description from the websites says it all:
“The K-12 Online Conference invites participation from educators around the world interested in innovative ways Web 2.0 tools and technologies can be used to improve learning. This FREE conference is run by volunteers and open to everyone. The 2007 conference theme is “Playing with Boundaries”. This year’s 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 “Fireside Chats” and a culminating “When Night Falls” event will be announced. Everyone is encouraged to participate in both live events during the conference as well as asynchronous conversations.”
I love the theme “Playing with Boundaries.” As educators, this is what we do every day. When we introduce Web 2.0 tools into the classroom we are essentially breaking barriers between classroom walls and the world.
The conference is broken down into four strands. Two strands per session week. The strands are:
Strand A: Classroom 2.0
Strand B: New Tools
Strand A: Professional Learning Networks
Strand B: Obstacles to Opportunities
Please leave comments about any sessions that you found to be particularly inspiring.
