Fireside Chats


Like our 2006 conference, several "live events" will take place during K-12 Online 2007. Again, we will use Elluminate for our synchronous meeting space. By offering preliminary "presenter roundtable" meetings in Elluminate, we hope to provide opportunities for presenters to become more familiar and comfortable with the Elluminate environment before the actual fireside chat events. However, there will be an opportunity to become familiar with the platform as the time for K12Online07 draws near.

At the end of each week, the keynoters and presenters for that week will be highlighted in a "fireside chat." This will give the participants a chance to meet presenters and ask questions about your presentation. We will have both large group discussions and then break into smaller groups during the "fireside chats." We will post the dates and times for these live events shortly so you can plan. But typically they occur on Friday or Saturday of the week you present. We try to be conscious of each time zone when selecting the synchronous meeting time, but as you can imagine someone will be inconvenienced. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience you will experience.
