K12 Online Conference 2008

The K12 Online Conference provides outstanding opportunities for free, collaborative, accessible professional learning for educators around the globe. The K12 Online Learning Conference 2008 will begin with a pre-conference keynote during the week of October 13, 2008. During the following two weeks, October 20-24 and October 27-31, forty presentations will be posted online for participants to download and view.

Donna DesRoches and I, collectively known as the Disruptive Innovators, will be presenting Beyond the Stacks: Using Emerging Technologies to Strengthen Teacher-librarian Leadership. Due to the explosive transformation in how information in created, organized, and accessed, we hope to stimulate proactive conversations focused on teacher-librarians meeting the learning imperative for the 21st century. As we face continual obsolesce, the misguided supposition that it is the SPACE, rather than the TEACHER-LIBRARIAN that is required for 21st century learning must be eradicated (Harada).
