Well this is a relief! To travel to China next week and present at the Learning 2.0 conference in Shanghai, I need a Chinese visa. Thanks to the speedy and professional services of The Travel Broker staff in Salt Lake City, Utah, my passport arrived back home today with my visa to China!
The cost of a double entry visa to China is the same as a single entry visa. So, if another travel opportunity to China comes up before February 2008 I’ll be all set! 🙂
The Learning 2.0 conference promises to be the most innovative educational technology-focused conference I’ve attended to date. In addition to the conference blog and conference Flickr group (which I’ve seen and used before for edtech conferences) the conference conveners are also using Twitter and Ning to encourage conversations prior to, during, and after the face-to-face event.
Unlike some of my other conference presentations, which I often tweak up to the night before the presentation, I’m planning to have all my sessions for Shanghai complete before the first leg begins of the 18 hour and 45 minute flight series that will take me from Oklahoma City, to Detroit, to Tokyo, and finally to Shanghai. 🙂
