Going ahead

At the very beginning, I must admit that I needed some rest after the course completion. On the other hand, I am missing the course so much but I hope that I will attend other courses in the future. Fortunately, there is a group on Facebook created by Nando where we all from the course share our ideas and we also give the suggestions. 
I would like to thank to Nando for giving me some instructions about the Webinars. As regards the Webinars, I must also admit that this is something really new to me. At the first, I was really confused but as the time goes by I am managing to keep in touch with all conferencing events. The first Webinnar I joined to is Classroom 2.0.

  
Welcome to Classroom20.com, the social network for those interested in  Web 2.0, Social Media, and Participative Technologies in the classroom. We encourage you to sign up to participate in the great discussions here, to receive event notifications, and to find and connect with colleagues. We have over 65,000 members from 188 countries!
Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. Because of spammers, we have to approve all memberships here. While your membership is pending you are still welcome to peruse the site or attend any events!

Once your membership is approved, you can introduce yourself to the whole network by going to
the introductory forum message. Please also feel free to explore! Here are some starting tips and a "Tour of Classroom 2.0" Elluminate recording, or you can ask help of a "host."  


This is very rewarding for all teachers because there are many constructive and helpful seminars where you can actively participate. The seminars also have many interesting and exciting threads which are useful for teaching and learning processes. There is also Social Learning Summit which will be on April 21st. Here are some pieces of information if you want to participate.

The Social Learning Summit - April 21st, 2012


We are very pleased to announce the call for participation for the worldwide 2012 Social Learning Summit, a one-day virtual conference being held as a partnership of Classroom 2.0 and the Discovery Educator Network, on Saturday, April 21st, 2012. This is a free event, with a focus on inclusion and participation. All sessions will be publicly available to attend through the online Blackboard Collaborate platform.
The conference theme is the use of social media and Web 2.0 in teaching and learning, and the conference URL is http://www.SocialLearningSummit.com. To be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please make sure you are a member here at Classroom 2.0. This will also allow you to correspond with the presenters and other members, and to comment on sessions and discussions.
  • The call for presentations is open and is HERE.
  • Presentations proposals that have been submitted and which are still pending can be seen HERE.
  • Accepted proposals can be seen HERE (if your session has been accepted but you didn't receive an email with additional instructions, please contact steve@hargadon.com) .
Sessions will be 30 minutes in length, and can focus on practical classroom application or pedagogical frameworks or both. Please do not submit a session if your are a vendor or a vendor representative. While presentation proposals will be accepted through April 7th, session acceptances will start to be issued on March 26th, at which time presenters will be given a chance to use a scheduling calendar to pick an available time to present. All sessions will be held in Blackboard Collaborate (previously Elluminate), and training sessions will be available both "live" and in recorded form.
We particularly encourage those who are working on (or have completed!) chapters or the 5th-anniversary Classroom 2.0 book project to present, and for those presenting to consider producing a book chapter! Because this adds preparation time, we are extending the book chapter deadline from this Thursday, March 15th, to the date of the conference, April 21st. For those who have already submitted their chapters (and what a great batch we have received so far!), we'll arrange some special treatment for you as a reward for your good work!

Please let others know about the conference! Artwork / logos are HERE.
