K12 Online Blog Goes Live9/12/2006 12:55:00 am
The K12 Online 2006 blog has just gone live. You will find the updated conference announcement there. Wesley Fryer has agreed to take on the role of convener for the Overcoming Obstacles strand. This rounds out the organizational team to four of us and Wes has already made significant contributions to the smooth running of the conference.
Wes designed the web form we will be using for the submission of proposals. Everyone is encouraged to submit a proposal. More details are on the conference blog: www.k12onlineconference.org. The blog will be updated regularly with everything you need to know about the conference. We'll also contine working on the site design over the next couple of days so you'll probably see regular changes to the look and feel of the site as we settle in.
Also, David Warlick and Alan Levine have graciously agreed to round out our list of keynote presenters. Alan is giving the keynote for the Basic/Advanced Training strand and David is kicking of the conference with a preconference keynote on how to get the most out of an online conference.
Lastly, you'll notice the new banner for the conference in the top right corner of our blogs. If you want one on your blog that links back to the conference blog (and who wouldn't?) here's the html code you can copy and paste into your blog template:
<a href="http://www.k12onlineconference.org/"><img src=" http://www.myaimistrue.com/k12badge.jpg" width=120 height=60 border=0></a>
If you want it centered, copy and paste this:
<center><a href="http://www.k12onlineconference.org/"><img src=" http://www.myaimistrue.com/k12badge.jpg" width=120 height=60 border=0></a></center>
Thank you to everyone who has proliferated the original post announcing the conference. There are so many of you it's difficult to thank you individually. Please continue to spread the word about K12 Online 2006 far and wide. We'd like to see hordes of teachers new to the blogosphere participating so tell your friends all about it ... and keep those proposals coming, there's still room for lots more in all four strands. ;-)
