K12 Online Conference 2009

The K12 Online Conference is a global conference that will take place in December this year. The dates (as I understand them) are:

The 2009 pre-conference keynote speaker is Kim Cofino, Thailand. Kim’s keynote will be published on Monday, November 30th. The synchronous "fireside chat" will take place on December 5th.

The actual conference is themed "Bridging the Divide".
Week one: December 7 – 11, 2009
Strand A: Getting Started
Strand B: Leading the Change

Week two: December 14 – 18, 2009
Strand A: Week in the Classroom
Strand B: Kicking It Up a Notch

A live event is planned for the Saturday following each week of the conference in partnership with EdTechTalk. These live events are being called LAN parties.

This year the conference plans to have an iTunes link as well as the video and audio links. Previous conferences are available on the site for your perusal.

Please be aware the deadline for proposal submission is August 16, 2009.
You may or may not be aware that even I presented in K12Online one year. As I am fond of saying, if I can do it, then anyone can. So get submitting!

Thanks for the heads up on K13Online this year. Must have had my head in the sand and missed the 2009 announcement. Thanks for keep us in the loop!
