k12 Online Conference 2009

Mark your calendars now for some of the most inspiring Pro D. out there. And the best part, it comes to you, in your livingroom, in your PJs, anytime of the day or night. Why not plan to get a group of colleagues together and make it a party.

The presenter's list for the K12 Online Conference has just been posted. Presentations start Dec. 7th. Mark your calendars!

I am thrilled (and terrified) to be part of a team putting together our own very first K12 Online Presentation. It's called LAN: Learning is Social. We will 'tell all' about our experiences this past year bringing the K12 presentations to staff district wide. This was an enormous undertaking as we put together six events that each showcased 4 presentations, skyped with the authors, discussed, offered hands-on training and fed up to 80 people at a time.

This was, bar none, the most exciting pro d I have ever attended. It proved to be an effective way to spread the message and ignite a fire under district teachers who might otherwise have never been aware of the many possibilities K12 Online showcases. I hope I've caught your interest and that you'll tune in when this year's presentations go live.
