Although this conference consumed most of my time for about two weeks last fall, it was so worth it.Plan to spend some time online this fall, and be prepared to LEARN.
Here is some information from the blog:
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 2008 conference theme is
“Amplifying Possibilities”. This year’s conference begins with a
pre-conference keynote the week of October 13, 2008. The following two
weeks, October 20-24 and October 27-31, 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. More information about podcast channels and conference web feeds is available!
