64:05 minutes (14.65 MB)Early in this podcast we were joined by Sheryl Nusbaum-Beach to share with us some of the big ideas and vision behind the K-12 Online Conference 2007:
Sheryl Nusbaum-Beach, a 20-year educator, has been a classroom teacher, charter school principal, district administrator, and digital learning consultant. She currently serves as an adjunct faculty member teaching graduate and undergraduate preservice teachers at The College of William and Mary (Virginia, USA), where she is also completing her doctorate in educational planning, policy and leadership. In addition, Sheryl is co-leading a statewide 21st Century Skills initiative in the state of Alabama, funded by a major grant from the Microsoft Partners in Learning program. Sheryl blogs at (http://21stcenturylearning.typepad.com/blog/).
In the second half of we get into the nitty-gritty of joining the Personal Learning Space (and Youth Voices)with teachers from four different corners of the United States: Lynne Culp from Los Angeles, Kevin Sandridge from Florida, Donna Bragg from Pennsylvania, and Woody Woodgate from Alaska.
Paul Allison, Lee Baber, and Susan Ettenheim had a few ideas as well.

Moving across the country, we were also joined by Chris Sloan in Utah, Kevin Sandridge in Florida. Lee Baber from Virginia also joined Paul Allison and Susan Ettenheim in New York. What did we talk about? Well, we had another planning meeting around this medley of sites:
42:30 minutes (9.74 MB)Six teachers gathered together to discuss the start up of school from laptop rollouts to getting schedules late, from recording introductory podcasts to using four images to represent themsleves, from curriculum to theory, from play to internet safety.
