A Big Thanks to the Live Events Committee

The “Fireside Chats” and “When Night Falls“ for K12 Online 2007 bring together so many folks from around the globe. A primary goal of the conference was to provide opportunities to connect and hold meaningful conversations around engaged teaching and learning and these “Live Events” became important vehicles in which to do just that.

They would not have occurred without the diligent, hard and creative work of the Live Events Committee. It is so difficult to express how much we appreciate all the energies and time they have put in to make the “live events” possible. The planning, the behind the scenes emails and the wiki building were indeed a group effort. Thank you! The “When Night Falls Flickr Group”, which was Mark’s inspiration, took When Night Falls to the next level; the community loved it! To Vinnie, for your leadership, it wouldn’t have happened without you.

A huge thank you goes to this committee:

    It has been a terrific two weeks. I have enjoyed very much the opportunity to listen to and follow up on the many excellent presentations. For me, the chance to learn so much without placing my carbon footprint on the planet by way of travel has been woderful. I have blogged about the things I have found out about and spoken to people who have locked their minds into the necessity of F2F.
    Thanks you.
