From late on Thursday. Good to see the neo-liberal and corporate side of K-12 online learning well represented (but was there really any doubt that it would be).
The International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) is hosting its annual conference for K-12 online and blended learning, the Virtual School Symposium (VSS), in New Orleans on October 21-24, 2012. Click here to register now.
This is the leading conference focused solely on K-12 online and blended learning providing comprehensive sessions for experts, advanced and beginning practitioners and policy makers in K-12 education interested in new learning models. VSS provides the highest-level of knowledge-sharing of best practices for practitioners and policy-makers seeking to develop e-learning programs within educational institutions in the United States, Canada, Mexico and abroad.
This year’s VSS will bring together over 2,000 representatives from national, state, district, private, and other next generation learning programs to attend the premier K-12 online and blended learning conference.
