How is it I didn’t see this earlier? I really do try to stay connected in a lot of ways, but seem to fail in the most curious ways. Anyway, this conference looks great, not just given the topic, but for its potential to bring together a lot of people who really should talk with each other. And the format is built to make that happen. I love that you submit conversations, not papers. Hope to see you there. Here is some text from the conference homepage.
Welcome to the ConnectEd Canada Conference official site! We are looking forward to hosting our first National conference to invite innovative teachers, students, and parents to share innovative practices that are happening all around Canada. At this conference, there will be more than just presentations, but conversations on how we can continue to move forward as educators. As we want to focus on keeping conference costs extremely low, it is imperative that YOU are ready to bring your best ideas and share them. The conference is totally participant driven and submissions for conversations will be open on October 15.
Here are some key dates for the upcoming conference:
October 28, 2011 – Call for proposals open.
December 8, 2011 – Proposal deadline closes.
December 22, 2011 – Participants will be notified if proposals are accepted.
December 22, 2011 – Opening for registration.
May 25-27, 2012 – ConnectEd Canada Conference 2012 held at Calgary Science School, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
As more details become available, we will share them on this website, and through the #ConnectedCA hashtag.
Looking forward to seeing you May 2012 in Calgary, Alberta!
