Hello All,

I invite, and encourage you to participate in the 2008 K12 Online Conference. As a volunteer for this year's conference, I can tell you that there are going to be some great sessions!

This conference is free to participate in and is presented entirely online. You can participate live in fireside chats and/or download the sessions when they are posted. This has proven to be an exceptional resource in years past and one you will want to share.

This year’s conference begins with a pre-conference keynote the week of October 13, 2008. The following two weeks, October 20-24 and October 27-31, forty presentations will be posted online to the conference.

Hi Cliff,
As an instructor in educational technology, I require my graduate students at CUNY to log on to last year's conference and "attend" a session. This year they will attend the October conference as part of their course work. Thanks for the overview.
