Social Learning Summit: Free & Online, Saturday, April 21st

For those lucky enough to have off on April 21st, please note this great learning opportunity : a one-day free virtual conference that is being held as a partnership of Classroom 2.0 and the Discovery Educator Network, Saturday, April 21st, 2012, from 9:00am – 3:00pm US Eastern Time. The conference theme is using social media and Web 2.0 in teaching and learning; the conference URL is  http://www.sociallearningsummit.com/ (the URL currently leads to the Conference Announcement page).

Classroom 2.0 is “…the social network for those interested in  Web 2.0, Social Media, and Participative Technologies in the classroom.” Although I’m not an educator, I have found recent webinars useful in learning how to better present information to others.

While the deadline has passed for submitting a presentation proposal, you can see the accepted proposals here. Presentations are 30 minutes long, and when I last looked, there were 7+ pages of topics to be presented. A very short list to show the type of presentations to expect:

Cool Educational Uses for QR Codes

Creating ePortfolios using Weebly

The Digital Citizenship Project

At the sharp end of the pencil” – Driving Technology Adoption

Anywhere, Anytime Learning

Making Online Learning Environments “Brain Friendly”

Transforming Lessons with Technology – 2012 DEN Guru Finalist

So if you have this Saturday free – stop by and see what’s going on!
