The K12 Online Conference 2009 begins this week! This year’s conference begins with a pre-conference keynote by classroom teacher and international educator Kim Cofino (http://k12onlineconference.org/?p=394)
The 2009 conference theme is “Bridging the Divide.” K12 Online 2009 is a FREE conference, run by volunteers and open to ANYONE interested in integrating emerging technologies into classroom practice. A primary goal of the conference is to help educators make sense of and meet the needs of a continually changing learning landscape. Live events and twice-monthly webcasts will continue into 2010 via EdTechTalk, and Professional Development Credit is available.
The following two weeks, December 7-11 and December 14-17, over fifty presentations will be posted online to the conference blog ( http://k12onlineconference.org/) and Ning (http://k12online.ning.com/events ) for participants to view, download, and discuss.
Live Events in the form of three “Fireside Chats” are listed on the events page of the conference Ning and Facebook fan page, and live events will continue in 2010 through twice-monthly “K-12 Online Echo” webcasts on EdTechTalk. Everyone is encouraged to participate in both live events during and after the conference as well as asynchronous conversations.
Over 122 presentations from 2008, 2007, and 2006 are available, along with archived live events. Follow the K12 Online Conference on Twitter (http://twitter.com/k12online ) and Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/K12-Online-Conference/168872343206?ref=ts )!
