Connected Educator Month - Week One's Amazing Schedule!

Connected Educator Month kicks off this week, and serving as a consultant to the event with significant responsibility especially for this week's events, I humbly think you're going to be BLOWN AWAY by the opportunities to learn and participate. All activities are free!

Connected Educator Month is a U.S. Department of Education’s Connected Educators initiative, coming out of Director of the Office of Educational Technology Karen Cator's working group on "online communities of practice." As a member of this working group, this is an event I've been super enthusiastic about (pushing for!), and shows an amazing level of support by the DOE for the role of online communities and social learning networks--networks like Classroom 2.0 that are "helping hundreds of thousands of educators learn, reducing isolation and providing 'just in time' access to knowledge and opportunities for collaboration." The goal throughout this August is to expose the broader audience of educators and administrators to the benefits of peer professional development.

The schedule for this week is below. You're going to be amazed at the INCREDIBLE caliber of the guests this week, and this is just the start. Don't miss the newly announced Learning 2.0 Conference August 20 - 24, with keynotes currently scheduled with Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Sugata Mitra, Marc Prensky, and Audrey Watters [NEW: Julie Evans, Michelle Pacansky-Brock, and Yong Zhao]; special Learning 2.0 / Future of Education interviews throughout the month with David Deubelbeiss, Lee Rainie, Rudy Crew, Roger Schank, Paulo Blikstein, Rob Fried, Gordon Dryden, Tony Wagner, and Michael Strong; and a powerhouse panel session on "Reforming Ed Reform" with Alfie Kohn, Gary Stager, Stephen Downes, Howard Gardner.

The full official and regularly-updated calendar can be found at http://connectededucators.org/cem, but the selected listing below may make it a little easier to see the scope of activities at a glance. For those events in Blackboard Collaborate, to make sure that your computer is configured correctly, please visit the support and configuration page.

Three GREAT (and Free) Virtual Conferences Where You Can Attend, Present, or Volunteer!

We have three great world-wide virtual conferences coming up in the next few months. Each is free to attend, and each has an emphasis on encouraging participation and presentations--even if you've never done so before. They are part of my Web 2.0 Labs projects, designed to provide spaces for great conversations around education. Everyone is encouraged to participate--you can present, attend, and/or volunteer to help!

Learning 2.0 (http://www.learning20.com)
August 20 - 24, 2012

Just announced! This conference has a short lead time (right around the corner!), but this is so that it can be part of Connected Educator Month, a month-long set of terrific activities to help educators connect with each other.

Learning 2.0 is a unique chance to participate in a global conversation on rethinking teaching and learning in the age of the Internet. Subject strands include changes in the classroom (social media, 1:1 computing, "flipped classrooms," digital literacy, maker spaces, gaming, open educational resources, digital textbooks), in student learning (individualized learning, student-directed learning, "hacking" education, personal success plans, ePortfolios, and building a digital presence), in teacher personal and professional growth (lead learning, personal learning networks, peer / open / self-directed PD), in schools (virtual and online schooling, mobile learning, blended learning, MOOCs, immersive environments, learning spaces, entrepreneurship, school leadership, big data, assessment models), and in pedagogy (from teaching to learning, social learning, social / educational networking, passion-based learning, learning how to learn, brain-based learning). A full strand list is available 
HERE.

The conference will also include an all-day virtual unconference (SocialEdCon online!) as well as a special educational start-up "pitchfire" event.

The conference general information page is HERE and call for presentation proposals and instructions for Learning 2.0 can be found 
HERE.



Library 2.012 (http://www.library2012.com)
October 3 - 5, 2012

In its second year, the Library 2.012 conference is a unique chance to participate in a global conversation on the current and future state of libraries. Held over the course of two days (three actual calendar days when including all time zones), there will likely be over 150 presentations. Subject strands include physical and virtual learning spaces, evolving professional roles in today's world, organizing and creating information, changing delivery methods, user-centered access, and mobile and geo-social information environments. A full strand list is available 
HERE. Huge thank to the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) at San José State University, the founding conference sponsor!

The conference general information page is HERE and call for presentation proposals and instructions for Library 2.012 can be found

The Global Education Conference (http://www.globaleducationconference.com)
November 12 - 16, 2012

Celebrating it's third year, and co-chaired by the amazing Lucy Gray, this five-day, 24 hour per day incredible event brings together educators and students from around the world to discuss globally-connected education, projects, and activities. It is designed to significantly increase opportunities for building education-related connections around the globe while supporting cultural awareness and recognition of diversity. Last year’s conference featured 340 general sessions and 18 keynote addresses from all over the world with over 10,000 participant logins. This year the conference is being run in conjunction with the iEARN worldwide international conference and we're anticipating some 20 - 30,000 attendees.

Tuesday - Michael Karnjanaprakorn from Skillshare on the De-Institutionalization of Teaching and Learning

Join me Tuesday, July 24th, at an early time for a live and interactive FutureofEducation.com webinar with Michael Karnjanaprakorn, CEO and Co-founder of Skillshare"a community marketplace to learn anything from anyone." At Skillshare, they believe that:  "[E]veryone has something they want to learn and something they can teach to others. This means our communities are really the greatest universities. Our platform helps make the exchange of knowledge easy, enriching, and fun." Michael and I will talk about the ways in which teaching and learning are becoming separated from our traditional learning environments, whether this is old wine in new bottles or represents a truly significant change (think of Craigslist and classified ads), and the importance of  passion and personal potential in learning.

Date: Tuesday, July 24th, 2012
Time: 2pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern (international times here)
Duration: 1 hour
Location: In Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate). Log in at http://futureofed.info.

Curiosity.
We’re all born with it. Albert Einstein dubbed it “holy,” Alistair Cooke called it “free-wheeling intelligence.” It’s that piquing force that nudges us to try it again, explore it some more, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out. From the moment we open our eyes, it fuels our existence. With each new answer we find, our world expands and our passions grow. We can't wait to share what we’ve learned and teach others how to do it themselves.
But for many of us, this excitement and spark to passion settles as the years go by. Instead of learning because we want to, we begin learning because we have to.
At Skillshare, we are on a mission to reawaken the slumbering curiosity and that rampant drive in everyone. To act as an enticing reminder that we are all natural-born learners and teachers — from day one to twenty thousand and one. We want to push everyone to discover their passions and be brave enough to chase them. Skillshare exists to make everyone the greatest possible version of themselves.
Our vision is to democratize learning by empowering teaching. To build a world where you can learn anything from anyone. Powered by an endless cycle of learning and sharing passions. We will turn every community into a campus. Every address into a classroom. And every inhabitant into a student and teacher. Skillshare is for the doers, not the academics or the theorists.
We are building the new world of education. From now on, there will be no passion left undiscovered, no personal potential left unfulfilled and no skill left unshared. In short, we’re here to change the world by increasing the global passion index.
The future belongs to the curious. The ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out.
Will you join us?
