Who? Peggy George joins us to talk about
The K12 Online Conference showing now at a computer near you


Where?  Blackboard Collaborate/Elluminate


The 2011 edition of the annual K12 Online conference runs from now through December 13, The conference features dozens of asynchronous presentations plus one live event at the culmination called “The AfterGlow”– all hosted by some of the most transformative educators in the field.  See the schedule at where you can access links to all of the blog posts and recordings for each presentation.

Peggy George is a retired elementary school principal and university pre-service education professor in Phoenix, AZ who is currently one of the co-hosts for the weekly Classroom 2.0 LIVE webinars on web 2.0 tools for educators. She describes herself as one of the conference “workerbees” otherwise known as an “organizer.” The main creator/convener is Wes Fryer and there are 4 strands to the conference, each with their own conveners. Peggy’s main responsibility right now is to upload the presentations daily to iTunesU at the same time they go live on the blog.  There’s a video here  that shows how to subscribe to Classroom 2.0 iTunesU recordings, and I’m sure Peggy will show us how to do that for K12 recordings as well. Specific instructions for subscribing to the K12 Online Conference iTunesU recordings can be found here: 

Peggy might also do a web tour of the conference blog and even play a teaser video in web tour which would open it in participant browsers. She can also show us the slides she prepared for a Classroom 2.0 LIVE show Nov 12 with Kim Caise and Lorna Constantini. This is the link to the blog post with the recording, chat, links, and LiveBinders link with all links shared during the session.

Followup from Peggy:

Hi Vance,
I really enjoyed being able to share about the K12 Online Conference with you today and hearing about your experiences with the conference and many other opportunities for free online learning!! I hope people who weren’t able to join us will take some time to listen to the conversation. 🙂

Since you weren’t familiar with Livebinders I thought you might like to see a few more. I started a to compile lots of great resources and examples of Livebinders and you can access all of them here.

I add new things to it daily so it is a growing compilation of tons of great Livebinders. 🙂

I also created a on Screencasting because Lorna Costantini and I will be presenting a week-long MoodleMeet session on screencasting in March this year. I wanted to collect lots of resources related to screencasting and “flipping the classroom” so I’ve been working on that and adding new things every day. You can access that here.

Thanks for inviting me to contribute to the Webheads community. It was great to be able to “give back” for all of the great connections and learning I have experienced as a part of that community.
