If you have not already, be sure to mark your fall (northern hemisphere) or spring (southern hemisphere) calendar for the 2008 K-12 Online Conference. 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 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. A call for proposals has been released, with a deadline of June 23rd. Selected presentations will be announced at NECC on July 2nd.
This evening, following a 2+ hour conveners meeting, we recorded a brief (13 minute) podcast discussing this year’s conference theme and selection criteria for conference keynotes.
In addition to checking out this latest podcast, please add the K12Online08 conference badge to your blog, wiki, or other educational website to let others know about the conference. We have updated the same graphic we’ve used the past two years, so if you placed our conference badge on your website previously it should already be showing the logo for 2008!
