Breaking free of traditional conferences, the upcoming K-12 Online Conference: Playing with Boundaries (October 15-19th & October 22-26th) provides educators with an engaging, ongoing learning experience without time constraints. The K12 Online Conference is a unique professional development opportunity for teachers to engage with ideas and technologies that are having a real impact on 21st century classrooms.
The entire conference will be delivered as downloadable digital media via the Internet with over 40 sessions presented in four strands: Classroom 2.0, New Tools, Professional Learning Networks, and Obstacles to Opportunities. The conference launches with a keynote address on October 8th from respected blogger and author David Warlick and concludes with a global 24 hour live event, As Night Falls.
I learned a great deal from the free sessions in last year’s k12onlineconference. I didn’t find the conference until late November, so I did not participate in any of the live events, but instead accessed the online presentations at my convenience, in small increments, as my schedule allowed. So, even though the content of the conference is posted in October, you can access it months later. I highly recommend you check out this conference, this year’s sessions as well as last year’s session. There are a few teasers available to if you want a preview.
