Well, after nearly three weeks out of the saddle, it’s time for me to get back on the blog horse. It has been an extremely busy end of summer and start of the school year for me, and for the first time this is a good thing. :)
I’ve been finding focused work very productive (for business and my studies), but I miss the connection blogging brings, and its time for me to breath some new life into this blog yet again. :)
I’ll start with this post, passing on the announcement of an upcoming online convention organized by Darren Kuropatwa, Sheryl Nusbaum-Beach, and Will Richardson. They have put out a call for proposals. Here is an excerpt from the announcement.
Announcing the first annual “K12 Online 2006″ convention for teachers, administrators and educators around the world interested in the use of Web 2.0 tools in classrooms and professional practice. This year’s conference is scheduled to be held over two weeks, Oct. 23-27 and Oct. 30- Nov. 3 with the theme “Unleashing the Potential.” A call for proposals is below.
There will be four “conference strands”– two each week. Two presentations will be published in each strand each day, Monday – Friday, so four new presentations will be available each day over the course of the two-weeks. Each presentation will be given in podcast or screencast format and released via the conference blog (URL: TBA) and archived for posterity.
