The Getting Smart team is headed to Orlando- but not really to see Mickey. We will be attending the iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium (#iNACOL13) next week and we hope you can join us. Registration for the symposium (Orlando, FL 10/27 – 10/30) is still open.
We are very excited to contribute to the overall conversation by participating in and facilitating sessions at this cutting edge conference. If you are attending, please sign up now for any and or all of our sessions using the conference online community website, so we’ll be sure to see you and feel free to tweet (@Getting_Smart) or email us any topics you’d like to make sure we cover before hand.
The Blended and Online Learning Symposium conversations will be connected through the conference digital social tool, Pathable. Every session, presenter and attendee will have a landing spot to keep organized and connected. Below are pathable links to the description of each session.
