Call for Proposals for Great Free, Online Conference

The FREE 4T Virtual Education Technology Conference will run from May 18th-May 21st.  There will be 45 workshops and breakout sessions on all aspects of technology in education.  This is a great conference hosted by University of Michigan School of Education graduate students. When they wanted to learn more about educational technology in their coursework, they put out the call to teachers world wide. The result is this excellent, free, online conference!

Last year I had the opportunity to present at the 4T Virtual Education Technology Conference on two topics: Digital Writing and Global Classrooms. It was a great experience with attendees from across the United States and around the world. It was also a great opportunity for teachers I work with to share the amazing things they are doing. We had fun doing panel presentations with each teacher taking about 10 minutes to share their lesson ideas and resources. This was a great introduction to online presentations for teachers. 
The 2013 4T Virtual Conference's Call For Presentation Proposals is now OPEN!  Consider presenting! The organizers were very helpful if the technology is new to you. Here is the link to make a proposal: https://sites.google.com/site/conference20122/to-dos  And follow them on Twitter or use this hashtag #4t2013

And if presenting isn't your thing, certainly register. The conference is free and they are providing free CEUs to participants. Register here:  https://sites.google.com/site/conference20122/project-definition I always learn the most from other teachers sharing what they are doing and a conference called "Teachers Teaching Teachers about Technology" is all about just that!
