[TIPS] k12online conference

The problem with being busy is that you don’t have the time to do some of the things that you really enjoy. (“Oh really, Jim? We’re teachers. We didn’t know that.” )  ;-)

For example, I didn’t get to try to participate in the k12online conference this year, nor even view the presentations as they were being released. But, the good news is that all of the presentations are available on the website for you to watch when you DO have the time.

Then I read in Darren Kuropatwa’s blog (A Difference – http://adifference.blogspot.com) about this cool stack that shows the pages in the k12onlineconference  site. Scroll through them and click on those that interest you to be taken right to the page. (Darren gives the nod the David Warlick for showing this to him originally)

Give this a try. Very cool. And invest some time going through the presentations. You’re going to find LOTS of great information and ideas in there. Sheryl and Wes and the whole gang do a GREAT job with this every year. If you’ve not yet seen the site, GO THERE!

Oh, and be sure to check out Kathy Cassidy’s page about her “blogging buddies.”http://k12onlineconference.org/?p=319  Remember her VERY cute video? ( http://tipline.blogspot.com/2008/08/tips-wonderful-blog-and-video-to-see.html)

(“Hmmm. First graders blogging?  WHAT?? They can’t do that! Blogging is NOT permitted – even with our staff. Not sure why, exactly. Something to do with.. something, I’m sure. But, blogging? NEVER!”

<sigh>
