Save the date…on May 5 Ottawa Area Intermediate School District is hosting the first annual Connecting & Collaborating Conference. This going to be a great day for teachers and administrators who want to take a closer look at the use of so-called Web 2.0 tools in the classroom. And it’s not simply a sit a get workshop…attendees may choose from four concurrent 90 minute sessions (two sessions before and two sessions after lunch) that will offer hands-on experiences for creating and using blogs, RSS, podcasts, and more. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptops for the best hands-on experience.
The day will feature Steve Dembo who will lead sessions as well as the luncheon keynote. Also presenting is Ben from The Tech Savvy Educator. More sessions are being added so make sure to check back to the official conference web page.
