Tappedin is having a festival on July 19 and everyone is invited. Will Richardson and I will be co-keynotes for this online event which starts at 11AM EDT. Will will take the lead for the first half hour and then I will follow. I'm really excited about this and this is what Tappedin has to say about our keynote,
"Will Richardson will lead off the Festival Keynote. Will's topic under Sustaining Professional Development will be "The collaborative nature of Web 2.0 technologies like blogs, wikis etc and how teachers can utilize them for ongoing professional development."
Midge Frazel will follow with "Moving from Face-to-Face to Online Professional Development for Tired Teachers." In this half-hour keynote presentation, Midge Frazel will share her ideas about online professional development from both sides of the monitor. After twenty years providing face-to-face workshops for teachers, she enrolled in a completely online Master's program and will share tips on how to be a successful online student. Online learning requires a change of attitude for many teachers who lead busy personal lives, are tired after a long day at school and can't stand to sit through long boring lectures in a classroom. Dress is casual; bathrobes preferred for this not too tiring look at today's online learning experience."
Hope to see you there!
