Amazing presentations continue to be shared in the 2008 K-12 Online Conference! I was not able to take in a full session today, however, and I feel behind already! I’m reminded of the following “Pirates of the Caribbean” parody slide Karen Montgomery shared last year at the METC conference in St. Louis:
I don’t want to be left behind! 🙂 Thankfully, since all conference sessions for the K-12 Online Conference are archived indefinitely for asynchronous downloading, enjoyment, as well as free professional development credit, I know time is on my side! Still, I’m anxious to view more of the presentations which have already been shared this week.
Tomorrow evening here in the United States (6:30 pm CST or 11:30 pm GMT) you are invited to join all four conveners of the K-12 Online Conference and the Seedlings for a webcast conversation on EdTechTalk. The Seedlings are Alice Barr, Cheryl Oakes, and Bob Sprankle. You might watch their 25 minute keynote for K12Online08, “How Can I Become Part of this ReadWriteWeb Revolution?” prior to the webcast if you have not seen it already.
As the hopeful future author of the book “Here for the Learning Revolution,” I am naturally a huge fan of their presentation and presentation title. 🙂
Please also join conveners, presenters and participants in K12Online08 this coming Saturday at 3 pm GMT (10 am CST for me in Oklahoma) for our week 1 fireside chat with presenters in Elluminate. Use the following link to join the session:
More information is available on the K12Online08 fireside chats wiki page. Also don’t forget the 24 hour culminating event “When Night Falls,” which starts at the end of Halloween on October 31st. Volunteers are still needed to help facilitate as primary and secondary moderators.
The learning revolution marches on. It’s great to hear from many of the drum majors in this parade via their K12Online08 presentations! 🙂
