K12 Online Conference: Proposals being accepted now!

I was most delighted tonight to find the official announcement for the K12 Online Conference spread over the blogosphere. Last years conference was a fabulous collection of educators sharing the best of Web 2.0. This year will be even better!

This year’s conference is scheduled to be held over two weeks, October 15-19 and October 22-26 of 2007, and will include a preconference keynote during the week of October 8. This year’s conference theme is “Playing with Boundaries.”

There will be four “conference strands”– two each week.
Week 1
Strand A: Classroom 2.0
Strand B: New Tools
Week 2
Strand A: Professional Learning Networks
Strand B: Obstacles to Opportunities

This call encourages all, experienced and novice, to submit proposals to present at this conference via this link. Take this opportunity to share your successes, strategies, and tips in “playing with boundaries” in one of the four strands as described above.

Deadline for proposal submissions is June 18, 2007. You will be contacted no later than June 30, 2007 regarding your status.

Presentations may be delivered in any web-based medium that is downloadable (including but not limited to podcasts, screencasts, slide shows) and is due one week prior to the date it is published.
