Today is the start of our FREE, 7th annual, 2012 K-12 Online Conference! This week Kevin Honeycutt is kicking off our “Learn, Share, Remix” themed conference with a dynamic, 22 minute video keynote: “Launching Learning!” Check it out and download it in either iOS-friendly video or audio formats:
The presentation description is:
In this PreConference Keynote for the 2012 K-12 Online Conference, educator Kevin Honeycutt challenges us to “remix learning” by combining our old models for school with today’s possibilities to make learning more interesting and engaging for students. We shouldn’t amputate kids’ digital limbs when they come to school! If Applebee’s can be lit theatrically to make your food more interesting, why can’t this be true in our schools? We need to hear more reasons why we CAN make learning more interesting, and invite the students to help us co-create our learning environments. How do we let students get excited about their learning and become archeologists of their own learning? Rather than focusing on what we CAN’T do, let’s focus on what we CAN do no matter what our budget is. The “killer app” for the 21st century is “to learn to love to learn.” Kevin ‘challenges us to think new ideas, get rid of laminated lesson plans, and be an advocates for students as together we embrace project-based learning.
The 1st “regular week” of our conference will start next Monday, and each weekday for the following two weeks four different video presentations will be posted online per day.
Also remember all K-12 Online Conference presentations are available in both video and audio formats on our iTunesU channel!
Please share our conference and PDF conference flyer with other educators you know – our conference is entirely online, entirely FREE, and entirely AWESOME!
