Virtually going to the school symposium in 2012 #vss12

One of the best networking opportunities in online and blended learning is the Virtual School Symposium from iNACOL.  This year it is being held in New Orleans, LA Oct 21-24.

VSS12

Unfortunately despite presenting twice last year and meeting lots of great people in virtual learning, this year for practical reasons I cannot attend in person.  But VSS embraces the online nature of our business and offers a variety of outlets for folks like me.

First, they have a wiki from which they link presentations from the conference, many of the presenters add their handouts and complete presentations so there is a lot of information.  Some sessions are actually recorded so you can get more than the materials  You can view one of mine from last year on Inducting New Hires into virtual schools. To see the entire set of recordings from last year go to http://www.kzosites.com/inacol/

So this year I will be attending Virtually.  I will miss the networking opportunities, but still have a chance to be a part of the learning and sharing that goes on.
