If you have participated in any capacity to date in the 2008 K-12 Online Conference as a participant, presenter or volunteer, please take about 5 minutes and complete this short Google form evaluation. An embedded version of the form is available on this post from the conference blog.

Looking at the ClustrMap hits for the conference this year, it appears we had about half the attendees this year we had in 2007 at this point following the weeks of the actual conference.

k12online08: Total ClustrMap hits after the conference: 25,393

I’m not entirely sure about the reasons for this, but I suspect we may not have had as much of a PR blitz on listservs and other educational networks in 2008. As a convener I really want the conference to reach a wider audience than “just” those educators already reading blogs and using web 2.0 tools. I believe the conference should also reach out to early/late majority and laggard teachers, when it comes to their uses of web 2.0 technologies to support both personal and classroom learning.

Any and all feedback you have about the conference and specifically this goal of trying to reach more teachers to bring them into these conversations will be welcome via the evaluation form.

We are, btw, using a free Google form instead of SurveyMonkey this year for the evaluation. Let’s hear it for free web 2.0 tools!
