With school in session, conference season will start ramping up again as well. With the economy, fewer people attend conferences, but they still need the expertise and ideas they would find at a conference. Right here is where the K-12 Online Conference (http://k12onlineconference.org/) can help. We reviewed this conference last year (http://www.k12opensourceclassroom.org/?p=117), but basically, people from around the country and world get together for a few weeks to provide asynchronous and synchronous sessions on a variety of technology items.
The greatest thing about the conference is that EVERYONE in the field participates. From hands-on to keynotes, everyone comes, and you can learn a lot! Lots of sessions on all the buzz items, such as Moodle, Mahara, and other course/content management systems, open source apps, and I am guessing this year we’ll see more with Apple and Android apps. You can even earn CEUs, if needed, although check that out ahead of time. Visit the conference and share with your friends!
