Check Out the K12 Online Conference - Igniting Innovation

Earlier this week Dr. Wes Fryer kicked-off this year's K12 Online Conference with a great keynote video. The theme of this year's conference is igniting innovation. Wes put together a great video in which he talks about what motivates his innovation and how we can help students become innovators. Wes did a great job of including not only his perspective but also those of twelve other educators (I make a brief cameo in the video).

In his keynote post Wes included a call to contribute your voice to the conversation about sparking innovation. To contribute, create a 60 second video about one of the following questions then submit your video here.

  • What ignites your spark for teaching and learning inside and outside the classroom? 
  • What sustains your spark for creativity and innovation? 
  • What can be a spark of innovation to encourage teachers who are not early adapter / innovators in our schools?

The K12 Online Conference is an annual event in which presenters post video presentations that align to that year's theme. New videos are released at 8am Eastern Time every day from October 20th through the 31st. You can view the presentations on YouTube and iTunes. Find the schedule of presentations here.
