Now that I have consumed the opening keynote for the K12Online Conference, I look forward to the evenings first LIVE event! Tonight at 7PM you can join David Warlick and many other educators from ALL OVER THE WORLD (I kid you not) in what is hailed as a “fireside chat,” aptly named b/c of the casting glow of the computer screen that warms your face. The chat is from 7-9PM, and is hosted by Elluminate. Visit the K12 Online Conference site for your portal into a virtual experience of a life time. I remember it well from last year, and to say it is surreal is an understatement. (Notice the glow on my face from the computer screen!)
No, folks, I won’t be fooling with it at all today. I do have a day job at Conway Middle School. I hope to be playing with video some today with a few kids, as well as promoting the SC Book Award Nominees. But tonight, instead of watching prime-time tv (that I can catch later in the reruns which will be here all to soon!) I’ll be online and with this group at the Fireside Chat.
Immediately following the fireside chat, I’ll virtually leave the “fire” to attend a live webcast of the weekly show “Women of Web 2.0” who are hosting none other than master digital storytelling guru David Jakes from Chicago and Edinburg, Scotalnd’s blogger guru Ewan McIntosh, who BOTH absolutely amazed me this summer at Alan November’s Building Learning Communities conference this summer.
