Jen's Link: With K-12 Online, -> see http://k12onlineconference.org/ ... and Global Ed -> seehttp://www.globaleducationconference.com/schedule-gmt-6.html ... , we have seen lots and lots of examples of folks facilitating presentations.

Some areas to consider: (a) asynchronous tools and strategies, (b) synchronous tools and strategies, (c) soliciting participant feedback (before, during, after), (d) the backchannel, and (e) posting for posterity (how, where, what?)
John's Link: So yes, perhaps we did talk about Wikileaks last week. But it's a big story, and it might be worth another pass.It's interesting how the news media has stretched it, taking a little piece in each news cycle, with "new" revelations, and new scandals. Then, there's the issue of whether they're terrorists, the statements by Senator Lieberman, and (more importantly) the response from the host and DNS providers. Then, there's the whole (somewhat related) issue of the US Government seizing the domains of copyright criminals. Is the wild west finally being tamed? Is free speech on the Internet dead?
