K12 Online Conference Next Week!
In a week, the second annual K12 Online Conference begins, and it's the talk of the edublogosphere right now. I'm very excited to about it and am really looking forward to some thought-provoking addresses and conversations as the conference gets started.
The organizers have asked that we spread the word about the conference by stating our 3 reasons for participating. See Wesley Fryer's original meme post here.
My 3 Reasons for Participating (for the first time) this year:
1. It's fantastic to have this access to so many people that are thinking about the same things I am these days as I try to create a 21st Century Library for my students & teachers. What an opportunity--and it's free!
2. The learning from this conference can go on all year long (or longer) through the archives, wikis, discussions on the K12 Online Conference site. If I get swamped in the middle of the conference (I hope I won't!), I can pick up where I need to. If I want to hear a presentation again, it's available! Powerful.
3. This conference fits my learning needs & interests right this minute better than what I have available to me locally. "Just in time" learning, I hope.
To further this meme, I am tagging the other participants in my district's Library2.0 Cohort.
I'll start with:
Not Done Learning
Maybe they'll tag some of the rest of our friends!
