Social Learning Summit

Saturday, April 21, 2012  Muskego High School

The Discovery Educator Network is mixing it up a little this spring and trying something different. Instead of the typical Spring Virtual Conference, the DEN has partnered with Classroom 2.0 to present the Social Learning Summit. This event will take the place of the DEN Virtual Conference in 2012. In  conjunction with the DEN, Steve Hargadon will be organizing the event that will take place on Saturday, April 21st.


The conference theme is the use of social media and Web 2.0 in teaching and learning, and the conference URL is http://www.SocialLearningSummit.com. To be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please make sure you are a member here at Classroom 2.0. This will also allow you to correspond with the presenters and other members, and to comment on sessions and discussions.

The Discovery Educator Network (DEN) Virtual Conference pro-vides an opportunity to learn powerful ways to integrate digital media and Web 2.0 tools into your instruction as well as discover an abundance of resources to expand your own professional learning network. And, it’s free!


You are invited to an in-person event hosted by the Wisconsin Leadership Council, with support from the Muskego- Norway Schools. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Ed Camp Milwaukee:  May 12, 2012

Have you considered “edCamp” Milwaukee? Mosey on over to the edCamp Milwaukee site! This un-conference will take place Saturday, May 12 @ South Milwaukee High School. What’s an EdCamp you ask? “edCamp” is a 1-day

“un-conference” in that it’s a chance for those in education (teachers, administrators, etc) to get together, network, share and learn. The day is planned during the kick off at the beginning of the day where any participant can propose a session idea/topic to the Idea Board.  All sessions are laid out and then everyone attends sessions they want during the rest of the day.

Still unsure?

You should watch this 2-minute video to hear from those that have attended an edCamp before. Check out our ABOUT page for more answers to questions you might have.   REGISTER HERE!!
