Week of November 15-23, 2008


Hello EdTechTalkers:


Welcome to this week’s edition of the EdTechTalk (ETT) Weekly Newsletter!

 

Last week, Teachers are Talking featured Sharon Peters, who came to discuss Teachers without Borders.  This important program sends teachers to various parts of the world to assist school systems that are in need of support.  Sharon told hosts Lisa Parisi, Cheryl Lykowski, and Susan van Gelder about her trip to Africa.  She then reminded us all that the Give 1, Get 1 Laptop program is running again.  You only have until November 26th to participate so hurry out to buy yours.

Week of October 5 – October 10, 2008
Hello EdTechTalkers:



Welcome to the this week’s edition of the EdTechTalk (ETT) Weekly Newsletter!
Once again, we’d like to give you a friendly reminder about the K12 Online Conference.  This FREE…yes, free…conference begins next week, with the preconference keynote on October 13th.  It is dedicated, in loving memory, to our own Lee Baber.  Her thirst for knowledge and belief in helping others learn and grow are fitting qualities for this unique learning opportunity.  The K12 Online conference runs over a two week period but goes on forever, as all the presentations are archived.  Come hear Vicki Davis’ and Julie Lindsay’s keynote address which kicks off week two of the conference, on October 27th.  Don’t miss Jen Wagner and Kim Cofino present "Connecting Classrooms Across Continents: Planning and Implementing Globally Collaborative Projects," which will be posted on October 29th.  And be sure to look into the Not K12 Online Conference, which will give us all an even greater opportunity for professional development.  You can whet your appetite by viewing some of the teasers for the conference here.
