2010 Announcements

Announcing 2010 K-12 Online Conference Presenters

Since 2006, the K-12 Online Conference has provided outstanding opportunities for free, collaborative, accessible professional learning for educators around the globe. The 2010 conference promises to again provide more exemplary learning opportunities in the same spirit of collaboration and sharing, as together we “Cultivate the Future!” The learning will begin with a pre-conference keynote during the week of October 11, 2010, and this year feature a closing keynote for the first time. We again invite presenters to submit “teaser trailers” for their presentations in advance of the conference.

This year’s fantastic line up of keynote presenters will create an inviting and welcoming introduction in which the sharing of ideas among diverse learners working in diverse contexts continues. Our distinguished keynote speakers will not only extend the conversations, but also invite each of us to stretch and grow as they share their expertise and wisdom in their respective strands. See our post from August 22nd for more information about keynote speakers in each of our 2010 strands.

The selection process for our 2010 conference was challenging as the quality of proposals was outstanding. We thank everyone who submitted a proposal. We are elated to announce the K12 Online 2010 presenters whose creativity, depth of thought, and innovation promise to make K12 Online 2010 exemplary.
