The Midwest Education Technology Conference (METC) is held each year in St Louis, Missouri in February. This year, I was honored to join Darren Kuropatwa, Angela Maiers, David Jakes, Ian Jukes, Gail Lovely, Leslie Fisher, Deneen Frazier-Brown, Scott Meech, Howie DiBlasi, and many others presenting at the conference. From August 9 through August 27, 2010, archived videos of many METC 2010 sessions are available FREE via the METC Moodle website. These include my keynote, “StoryChasing: Empowering Students as Digital Witnesses.”

METC 2010: Virtual Conference

The session description on the Moodle for my keynote is (currently) for another of my sessions, “Geo-StoryChasing: Mobile Digital Storytelling!” Access the Slideshare and Google Presentation versions of my keynote slides on my post from February 10th.

Be sure you take advantage of the FREE online METC 2010 conference by August 27th. You’ll need to create a free account on the conference Moodle website, and will be able to participate in asynchronous discussions there for each archived presentation. I’ll be checking in there periodically in the next few weeks to respond to questions.

Facing cutbacks in travel and professional development budgets this year? Viewing a conference presentation online is NOT as good as being there person in ALL ways, but it IS wonderful to have this type of access to great ideas for FREE.

Many thanks to the organizers of METC for not only sharing a GREAT conference this year, but also providing this free, online opportunity to experience or re-experience many of the keynote and featured speaker presentations. Thanks to Karen Montgomery as well, whose work with IDSolutions made these high-quality video archives of conference presentations available!
