You’ve still got several more days (till October 17th at midnight PDT) to submit a proposal for the 2011 K-12 Online Conference! Complete details about this wonderful, FREE, online conference are available on k12onlineconference.org. As a selected presenter you’ll create a twenty minute, engaging video presentation to share in one of our “strands” during our two week conference, the weeks of November 28th and December 5th, 2011. Unlike the 2011 Global Education Conference, scheduled for November 14 – 18, which features “live” presentations throughout a week, the 2011 K-12 Online Conference is entirely asynchronous. This means you can watch and learn from conference presenters at any time following the posting of each presentation. All presentations are also available for download to an iOS device via iTunesU.
Thanks to Naomi Harm for her work on our marketing materials for this year’s conference, which will be published soon so you can help “spread the word” about K12Online. PLEASE consider submitting a proposal to present for this year’s conference. We’re all busy, but the benefit of sharing innovative ideas is a gift which “keeps on giving” in the K-12 Online Conference. We have over 200 conference sessions archived on our website, and hope to increase access and utilization of these professional development opportunities to MANY more educators in the coming year. Add your voice to our team of educator-advocates telling stories and sharing skills about “purposeful play” for learning!
Earlier this week, I recorded a two minute summary of the K-12 Online Conference for a class Leigh Zeitz (Dr. Z) is teaching in Iowa. Feel free to share this as well with others interested or perhaps not yet acquainted with K-12 Online.
