The K12 Online Conference is about to kick off it’s ‘official’ schedule after a week of pre-conference activities which started with David Warlick’s Pre-Conference Keynote and I guess you could say the pre-conference week is ending, aptly, with the Virtual Staffroom’s contribution of an excellent podcast (38 minutes – well worth it!) about the event.
Throughout the week, the world got smaller and smaller as people across the globe connected on conference related topics at whatever level they wanted. Whether it was a social chit-chat in Warlick’s 48 hour chat area, reaching with others about the deeper meaning in borderless education, connecting on future projects, learning about the new tools affording global & real-time connections or group trouble-shooting on ustream and other issues…the web was on fire with virtual and real activity in the educational technology realm.
