First is our Social Learning Summit on Saturday, April 21st–a virtual, free, and worldwide conference being sponsored by the Discovery Educator Network on the use of social media and Web 20 in teaching and learning. One of the goals of the conference is inclusion, meaning we really want to encourage the broadest participation we can, not just for attending but also for presenting (don’t be shy–first-time presenters welcome!). We have started accepting presentation proposals already, and you can see the amazing and fun list of accepted http://www.classroom20.com/forum/categories/2012-social-learning-summit-accepted/listForCategory , and we are still accepting proposals through this Saturday, April 7th so don’t delay. Session blocks are 30 minutes in length, and more information on how to submit can be found http://www.classroom20.com/page/call-for-presentations-sls2012.
You can also help us by publicizing the event! It is free and open to anyone who wants to attend any of the sessions through the online Blackboard Collaborate platform. You can direct folks to http://www.SocialLearningSummit.com to learn more http://ow.ly/i/y4ri
