It’s that time of year again, the K-12 Online Conference is starting to ramp up. Last year I was involved on the Help Desk and I enjoyed it so much I am hoping to help again this year. I’m also thinking of submitting a presentation proposal… something along the lines of Web 2.0 Pedagogies for the Unconnected Classroom. I’m hoping to collaborate with teachers I have met online and through my consultant work. I’ll write more about my ideas later.
Here is what the CFP says:
We are pleased to announce the call for proposals for the third annual “K12 Online Conference” for educators around the world interested in the use of web 2.0 tools in classrooms and professional practice. This year’s conference is scheduled for October 20-24 and October 27-31 of 2008, and will include a pre-conference keynote during the week of October 13. The conference theme for 2008 is “Amplifying Possibilities.” Participation in the conference (as in the past) is entirely free. Conference materials are published in English and available for worldwide distribution and use under a Creative Commons license. The deadline for proposal submission is June 23, 2008. Selected presentations will be announced at NECC 2008 in San Antonio, Texas, USA on July 2.(check out http://k12onlineconference.org/?p=218 for more details)
