http://k12onlineconference.org/ It’s MUST SEE and MUST hear info. What a novel idea! An online conference (virtual in every aspect of the word) where you can actively participate through blogging, podcasting, videos, and wikis, or you can be a passive observer, and just soak up the information. You can even apply for renewal credits.
DavidWarlick’s opening Keynote address was yesterday, and last evening he participated in a Firelight Chat (using Elluminate) that was incredible. It was called a “firelight” chat because we would all be illuminated by the glow from our computer screens!! This goes on for two more weeks, and is chocked full of experts and more, all sharing about Web 2.0 in education. And BEST, I was afraid it would cater to the experts and experienced, but no, it is for even the most uncomfortable beginners. Might want to check it out.
