This arrived a few minutes ago. As per usual, no K-12 online learning focused sessions. But some that may be of general interest.
A message to all members of Classroom 2.0
Below are this week’s public, free, and interactive Webinars through LearnCentral.org, the social learning network for education that I work on for Blackboard Collaborate (Elluminate).
The time of the events below will show up automatically in your own time zone when you are registered in LearnCentral and when you have chosen your time zone in your profile, or you can check the new event time converter on the event page. Event recordings are posted and available after the events if you aren’t able to attend them live. If you are looking for an easy calendar import / RSS feed for these events, you’ll now find a link on your calendar page or the calendar page of specific groups!
We hope you will consider hosting your own public webinars using the free LearnCentral public room–instructions are available by joining the ‘Host Your Own Webinar’ group on the main announcement tab (http://www.learncentral.org/group/3432/host-your-own-webinars).
Thanks for your attention, and see you online!

Mon 12 Sep 09:00PM New York / Tue 13 Sep 01:00AM GMT / Tue 13 Sep 11:00AM Sydney
Peggy George. Fun, open, sharing session of web 2.0 tools and teaching resources. Join us and come prepared to share your favorites. Do you get excited and energized by talking with other educators about technology tools and resources? Do you often feel overwhelmed with all of the new tools and feel you don’t have time to keep up with everything? If you do, then the Mini-Geek Fest is here for you! No homework, no assignments, no cost—just an hour online, once a month to listen, share and discuss technology tools for your classroom, websites and more. Join co-hosts Kim Thomas and Peggy George in AzTEA Elluminate from the comfort of your own home. Professional Development credit (1 hour) will be available. The show will be on the second Monday of each month, 6-7PM (MST-AZ). It’s not a presentation or a tutorial, but a conversation–think of it like a “show and tell” where ALL participants can contribute. Shows will be recorded and archived so you can listen to the recordings later if you can’t participate in the live sessions. We look forward to an exciting and interesting conversation!
