There are so many conferences happening throughout the year, it is hard to decide which one to go to. It would seem like there should be a way for us to use the power of the web to share our best practices and what works for students.
Now there is! On May 2nd from 12pm to 10pm EST, come check out over 40 sessions for teachers by teachers. It is 100% online and 100% free. Using Google+ Hangouts On Air, the educators will have a live video chat and it will accomodate as many people as we can get.
If you are unfamiliar with a Google+ On Air Hangout, it was used to have a conversation with President Obama. Others have included Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama, the Black Eyed Peas, and many others using Google+. For more information you can follow Google in Education on Google+.
The topics will include everything from digital literacy to assessment to blogging. I will be collaborating with David Berggren of the Holy Cows and Eileen Kahn of MorTorq to share our experiences with robotics and how it has made a huge impact on our students and communities. Our session will be at 8pm EST/ 5pm PST. Be sure to check it out!
