K12 Online Conference

The annual K12 Online Conference started Monday and runs through Friday, November 2. Here’s how the organization describes themselves: “This is a FREE, online conference open to ANYONE organized by educators for educators around the world interested in integrating emerging technologies into classroom practice. A goal of the conference (among several) is to help educators make sense of and meet the needs of a continually changing learning landscape.”

I always get good material from this though rarely catch a live presentation. The group conscientiously posts them online soon after they have aired. I just watched one on Going One-to-One. There is a healthy dose of technology, but that’s not all there is. Here are a few topics:
Launching Learning (Project-Based Learning)
Teaching Art in a Technology Rich and Connected Classroom
A Digital Journey with Primary Students and No Budget
Digital Tools for Differentiating Vocabulary Instruction
Using Writing to empower students to participate in a global community
