No Code - A Preview of my #RSCON3 Presentation

Time flies when you’re taking it easy! I’ve been awoken from my summer of ‘unplugging’ in a non-educational sense to take part in the 3rd edition of the Reform Symposium online conference, which takes place from 29th-31st July.

Last year’s event was the first online conference I had ever attended and it was a truly inspiring event and I’m very happy to have the opportunity to present and promote the event this year.

Here’s a video preview I made for my session, which takes place at 5.30pm UTC (check out the global schedule for the time in your part of the world) on the last day of the conference, July 31st:

And here’s the official information:

In a few days, nearly 8000 educators from over 40 different countries are expected to attend a free 3 day virtual conference, The Reform Symposium, #RSCON3. This free award-nominated e-conference is going to take place on July 29-31st, 2011. Participants can attend this online conference from the comfort of their homes or anywhere that has Internet access. This amazing conference provides educators new or currently active on social networks the opportunity to connect with educators and professionals in the field of education worldwide. With over 12 Keynotes, 80 presenters, and 3 keynote panel discussions you are bound to be inspired!

We would like to thank the incredible organizers- Shelly Terrell, Kelly Tenkely, Chris Rogers, Lisa Dabbs, Melissa Tran, Clive Elsmore, Mark Barnes, Ian Chia, Cecilia Lemos, Jerry Blumengarten, and Kyle Pace- and Steve Hargadon of Classroom 2.0 and The Future of Education online communities for making this incredible conference possible.

We hope you can join us for this incredible professional development experience!

  1. Once I figure out (or look really) when your session is in my time zone, I'll do my best to attend since I missed your last at VRT. =) Writing is one of my favourite things to teach, so I look forward to your ideas.
