This year for the 2012 K-12 Online Conference, our organizer and volunteer team is providing FOUR different live event opportunities. Unlike the past, we will not be holding synchronous/live “fireside chat” events in Blackboard Collaborate with specific presenters. When you tweet about the conference this year, please use the hashtag #k12online12 and follow the conversations using that hashtag.
Friday, October 5: Join the #connectedPD Twitter Chat on Friday, October 5th at 9 am PDT / 10 am MDT / 11 am CDT / 12 pm EDT. Use your favorite Twitter client to participate, just make sure you include the hashtag #connectedPD so everyone else will see your messages. The free website TweetChat (http://tweetchat.com) is excellent for Twitter chats. Read more information about #connectedPD on http://connectedpd.posterous.com/pages/events.
Saturday, October 13: Join the Classroom 2.0 LIVE Community for a webinar preview of the 2012 K-12 Online Conference. Organizers will discuss what’s new in this year’s conference, “Learn, Share and Remix.” Get a taste of the presentations coming in our strands this year, Getting Started, Visioning New Curriculum, Kicking It Up a Notch and Student Voices. Also learn about our dynamic pre-conference keynote presentation, to be shared by Kevin Honeycutt. The homepage of Classroom 2.0 LIVE (http://live.classroom20.com) will have the direct Blackboard Collaborate links the week prior to this show.
Friday, November 2: Join the #connectedPD Twitter Chat on Friday, November 2nd at 9 am PDT / 10 am MDT / 11 am CDT / 12 pm EDT to discuss the K-12 Online Conference. This is the last official day of our conference. Read more information about #connectedPD on http://connectedpd.posterous.com/pages/events.
Sunday, November 4: Join the final live event of our conference, in the weekly “Learning2gether” webinar with facilitator Vance Stevens at 7 am PST / 8 am MST / 9 am CST / 10 am EST. Note this will take place the morning of the time change! These times will reflect one hour of “falling back,” so consider this a test of your time zone skills! We hope you’ll join.
