Irving ISD and the K12 Online Conference

This year Irving ISD has decided to borrow an idea from Jeff Utecht and his K12 Online LAN Party idea. We will be hosting a couple of live sessions for teachers in the area to attend, watch some of the K12 Online Conference and take part in some discussions with fellow educators.

The plan is to start the morning by viewing a couple of K12 Keynotes and discussing. Participants will then choose a strand (Getting Started, Prove It, Kicking It Up a Notch or Leading the Change) and a couple of sessions from that strand to participate in. Next, participants will get together with others who selected the same strand and take part in some face-to-face facilitated discussions. The purpose is to hopefully gather some new ideas from other educators from around the world (K12 presenters) and around the community.

In order for the Irving ISD/K12 extravaganza to be successful, we need some participants. Please join us!

The get together will take place at The Academy of Irving (map) on Saturday, November 8th and Saturday, November 15th from 9:00am – 12:00pm.  You will need to bring a laptop with you so you can view the on-line presentations.

Please join us to take place in the discussion (and bring a friend)!

I have included a flyer and podcast below so you can learn more about the Irving ISD/K12 endeavor.  Feel free to leave me a comment or contact me on Twitter (astevens74) if you have further questions.

Thanks and we hope you choose to join us in the discussion!
