K-12 Online Conference

It's on! The 2007 K-12 Online Conference has started and will be ending.....well, it may never end! The conference, mainly organized by David Warlick, is designed to connect educators in an online environment and stretch the boundaries of the traditional conference. Here is the write up from their site:

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.

So...when you have a chance, hop on to the site and check out some of the offerings....
