You've Gotta Start Somewhere

As the old saying goes...You've gotta start somewhere...That somewhere for me is going to be the Colorado Conversation this weekend.

All the virtual conferences/webcasts/podcasts etc. have been so beneficial that I want to share that with others. Especially my teachers.

Below is the email I sent our district about hosting the Colorado Conversation "virtually" in Missouri. If you read my blog and you live close by, feel free to join us. You will need to fill out the form below so I can keep an accurate count.

So far I have 10 signed up!!!

"Willard Staff,

This is just a reminder email regarding this coming
Saturday PD opportunity. Below are the details and form
for you to sign up that you are attending.

This will be very informal. Panera next door. You are
welcome to come and go.

What: Live streaming into a technology conference in
Colorado. ((There are MANY live workshops/conferences
every day that you can attend in the comfort of your own
home. We will attend this one together and then you will
be able to "attend" on your own in the future:)

BYOL - Bring your own laptop and headphones. I will have
some extras if needed. You need to have wireless
