I nominated myself this evening for TEDxOKC, which is scheduled for April 8, 2010, in Oklahoma City. The nomination form requires three video links and a short paragraph. I used the following:

(this is a self-nomination) I’m very passionate about working as a change agent in our schools to promote 21st century skills, blended learning, and transformative 1:1 environments for learning. Balanced content filtering is a key part of that conversation, and as parents as well as community members we need to understand the facts and stop acting based on ignorance and fear about Internet safety issues. I’m an experienced presenter and want to succinctly make this case for a wider audience. The “Balanced Filtering Online Gradebook” will be available / in use by TEDxOKC in April (outlined in the OpenBeta5 presentation video shared above as #1) and it will be good to share results to date as well as the tool with others.

I’m very enthused we’re going to have a TEDx event in Oklahoma City. Whether or not I have an opportunity to present there I’m going to do my best to attend. There’s a tremendous amount of synergy around these events, and I look forward to not only hearing the great ideas of others but also working with others to continue making our state even better as a result of TED sharing!
