K12 online conference has started this week -- enjoy it!
K12 Online is a fantastic resource for all educators. There are many great speakers lined up for this year's conference. While I missed out on submitting this year (not having AC for most of August got me out of kilter) there are so many incredible educators there that it will be an AWESOME source of learning. Plan ahead and MARK YOUR CALENDARS to participate.
K12 online announces their themes and are also looking at including presentations in Spanish. The call to present will be released during NECC 2009.
Silvia Tolisano shares her very good outline of the keynote Julie and I did for k12 online as well as her reflections.
I love the thing she got from this -- why do some teachers take time to grow and others do not? What can we teach teachers to do that will help them grow?
Those who want to share a presentation they've done with the K12 online community, share at the K12 online fringe festival just starting up at notk12online -- ANYONE can submit a preso on ANYTHING. So, dust off those slideshares and vids and start sharing!
