As the 2007 K12 Online Conference gets closer, it’s time to start getting the word out to everyone about it. You may recall I blogged on it a few weeks ago, but since that time I volunteered to help out on an organising committee for the conference so I’m getting to see all the work that goes on behind the scenes of a conference like this. One of the things we’ve been working on is a printable flyer that can be copied and stuck on the noticeboards in your schools to help promote the event to your staff.
If you’re in a school, here’s what you can do to help spread the word about the event…
- Download and print some copies of the flyer for your staff. Put them on the noticeboard. Put them in teachers’ pigeonholes (that’s inboxes for you North Americans). Leave them on the staffroom coffee table.
- Talk about the event at a staff meeting or morning briefing. Let people know about the event. Tell them the dates. Give them a quick overview of what it’s about.
- Encourage people to take part in the event. And of course, take part in the event yourself!
I was at a conference today with about 150 ICT integrators and most of them were unaware of the event. I did my best to change that. However, you can bet that the majority of teachers in your school also know nothing about the conference, and many of them would find it very beneficial. Even if only a handful of teachers on your staff actually take part, it could make a world of difference to them. Please encourage everyone to check it out.
