“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

Virtual Conference Tomorrow (May 2nd)

Google Education are presenting (what I think is the first) 'On Air', an online conference using Google+ Hangouts (which is, btw, a fabulous conferencing/webcasting tool). There are half a dozen topics to choose from in six different categories, covering the educational purposes and uses of Google Apps, Youtube, the Cloud, Digital Literacy, portfolios... well, it's a long list, so here's the very first, which is titled 'Hot Topics in Educational Technology':
  •  2pm PD Now!
  •  3pm Blended Learning
  •  4pm Digital Literacy & Citizenship
  •  5pm Teachers as Innovators and Entrepreneurs
  •  6pm Digital Natives at The Gates: Giving in to 21st Century Learners is Not the Same as Giving Up
  •  8pm Building Tomorrow's Innovators and Leaders with Robotics
And here are the rest of the sessions: https://sites.google.com/site/eduonair/conference-sessions

Times are for Eastern time, so add 4 hours for UK time.
