I’m very enthused Chris Lehmann is keynoting the “Leading the Change” strand of the 2008 K-12 Online Conference, which begins its first “regular” week in about six hours. Chris’ keynote will be posted a week from this Monday, on October 27th. This evening I took some time to watch this 5 minute video of Chris’ presentation at the “Ignite Philly” event recently.

Ignite Philly:

…is a series of speakers talking about inspiring projects for 5 minutes. The presentations can be serious, funny, or somewhere in between.

For more of Chris and his ideas, in addition to subscribing to his blog “Practical Theory” see my summer post “Chris Lehmann: The Pedagogical Visionary of School 2.0″ which includes a Ustream link of his NECC 2008 presentation “School 2.0: Combining Progressive Pedagogy and 21st-Century Tools.”

I updated the audio and video podcast channels for the 2008 K-12 Online Conference this evening, btw. The new channels should show up in the iTunes directory later this week.

    This is a really great blog. I appreciated the fact that you put a balance on the amount of time spent on and off of our technology systems. Going through school in an age of growing technology and information, lots of reports are given about how things such as the internet can be addicting and take you away from reality. You make a good point that there should be a limit, or a boundary line. We can’t lose sight of the world off of our computers…even if what we are doing on them is useful and educational.
