[TIPS] - Stonehenge solved? - and k12onlineconference kickoff

I know that you know Stonehenge. Ever wonder how those rocks got there? This site is an excellent resource on the subject. But, at the bottom of the first page, click the ReadOn... link and on the second page you'll find a link to a movie that just may explain how those rocks got there and how they were set on their ends. Watch as this man moves and sets upright a 19+ ton pillar of his own. Amazing. For those of you studying simple machines this is a great movie.

It's here. http://k12onlineconference.org/ Tonight (6:00pm edt) is the Elluminate kickoff featuring David Warlick, author of, among other things, his 2 cents blog. Tune in to hear his kickoff to this first-of-its-kind conference. Then, starting next week you can tune into the site for some excellent, free, professional development courses. Here's the agenda: http://k12onlineconference.org/docs/k12online06-agenda.html There are some great "workshops" on hte new web tools and web technologies. The great thing about them is that they will be archived, too. I DO hope that you'll check them out.
 
See anyone on there that you know? :-)

Jim--
I thought the schedule for the k-12 online conference was really confusing--any chance you have a "tip" to figure it out more clearly--what time is your presentation?
