Connecting and Collaborating Conference May 5

In the Weekly Web Wonders email I've sent out numerous links and resources regarding new online tools such as wikis and blogs as well as collaborative sites like Furl, Writely, and del.icio.us. These new tools can be extremely useful to teachers, but I know many of you are pressed for time and can't fully explore them.

If you're interested in seeing how blogs, wikis, podcasts, Skype, and other cool tools can be used with your kids then consider attending the Connecting & Collaborating Conference on May 5 at the Ottawa Area ISD in Holland. I highly recommend that anyone who is able attend this hands-on conference. You'll leave with not only new knowledge, but newly created projects. Freedom to Learn participants: You're access to technology makes this an even more relevant day. Consider sending several teachers from your school.

If you have any questions, let me know. Below is the official description with all the registration information.
