If you’ve not taken part in it before, put the K12 Online Conference in your calendar. Run as a virtual conference, K12 Online is an annual two week long professional development event for educators around the world, where the conference “sessions” are offered in the form of digital presentations – podcasts, vidcasts, digital sories, etc.
This year’s event is based on the theme “Amplifying Possibilities” and will kick off with a pre-conference keynote address in the week starting October 13. Over the next two weeks, October 21 – 31, there will be a regular stream of virtual presentations released in four different strands. These 20 minute presentations have been selected from a number of submissions that teachers all over the world put forward, and were chosen using a blind peer review process.
This year, I was fortunate enough to have my proposal selected for the conference, something I’m very excited about! The session is called “I Like Delicious Things: an introduction to tagging and folksonomies“. Here’s a peek at a short promo teaser that all presenters were encouraged to create as a way of generating more interest in the conference…
I think I have a fair idea of what the presentation will cover, but I need to put it all together over the next week and a half. If you have any ideas, suggestion or questions about what you’d like to see it cover – on the basic theme of tagging and building knowledge folksonomies – please leave me a comment.
By the way, this video was shot using my Nokia N95 cellphone. I’m really happy with the quality of the video it captures and I plan to shoot the whole thing using it if I can. Of course, the real secret to the video quality is my camera person, the Lovely Linda. Thanks baby… you da best!
