Monday Night Fireside Chat with David Warlick

Please make plans to attend the K12 Online 2006 Unleashing the Potential Kick Off Fireside chat with Preconference Keynoter David Warlick on October 16, 2006 at 6pm EDT. This informal virtual chat will take place online using Elluminate Live software.

What is Elluminate?
Elluminate is a classroom/conference tool enhanced by VoIP (live voice communication). We have used it with hundreds of teachers, some with limited technical knowledge, and it is very easy to use and understand.
Participants can access the site via any high-speed connection, using a computer with a microphone.

How do I Join the Chat?

The following link will take you into our virtual meeting place. When you click on the link the necessary software will automatically download onto your computer and then open a window that asks you to type your name. Please type your first and last name as this will appear in the participant window once you are in our virtual fireside chat room. Feel free to click on the link in advance to make sure you are able to access Elluminate. On Monday, Oct. 16 at 6:00 PM EDT simply click on the link and you will automatically join the virtual meeting.

Once we all gather in the virtual meeting space, you will be given an quick overview of how to use these very intuitive learning tools prior to beginning our chat. Here is the link for gaining access to the room:

David Warlick and the k12 Online conference conveners look forward to chatting with you about David’s Keynote and the upcoming conference online.

See you there!

    Hate that I missed the fireside….was having troubles connecting. Kept giving me an error message about not being able to “read the memory?”

    Did anyone else have issues?

    I am also sorry to have missed the Fireside Chat. When I clicked on the link provided above http://tinyurl.com/rpt4a, and logged in to Elluminate, I was told the room was full. However it showed me logging in to a session called 21ST CENTURY COLLABORATIVE; which is running from Oct. 15th to Nov. 2nd.

    Will we be able to view an archived version of the Fireside Chat?

    Sorry for your troubles Janet and Bill. We had a full house. Elluminate has generously given us free space… but only 50 seats. WE never dreamed that many would show.

    I will post the archive. Check us out on Oct. 26.
