Classroom 2.0 Live in San Francisco

logo.pngFor all of you interested in the use of web tools in education, there’s a great free event coming up that we’re very glad to be involved with.

It’s Classroom 2.0 Live and the first two day event is being held in San Francisco on Feb 1st and 2nd.

It’s being organized by Steve Hargadon, a good friend of ours and a great advocate for technology in education. As with everything Steve does, this event is open and accessible. You can attend either or both days, you can contribute to the agenda, and it’s FREE to attend. Sponsors, such as Wikispaces, will be supporting the event.

So if you are going to be or can be in town sign up now! And make sure to spread the word about this great event.

Here’s a little more information about Steve and Classroom 2.0. We look forward to seeing you in February.

Steve Hargadon is the creator of a social network for educators called Classroom 2.0, winner of the 2008 Edublog awards for educational use of a social networking site, and home to nearly 5,000 educators interested in using Web 2.0 in the classroom.

Steve is passionately committed to a vision of “engaged education” that is emerging from the use of Web 2.0 and collaborative software–blogs, wikis, social networks, etc. He believes that it is very important for educators to have hands-on experience with Web 2.0 technologies themselves in order to understand how personal learning and education change when involved in the read/write web.

Steve is proposing to do a series of local workshops for educators exposing them to these tools–and also allowing those already using Web 2.0 in education to meet up and participate in the teaching. He intends for these workshops to be free to educators.

    Dear Adam,

    Steve Hargadon’s idea sound wonderful. I am interested to know more.

    I would like to continue to make free movies for teachers as I have done on Inquryschools, which would illustrate how students can use web 2.0 within an inquiry approach to learning.

    When you have time, please take a look at the site http://www.inquiryschools.net and if we can do something together soon or sometime in the future, I would be very interested.

    Cheers,

    Sherryl

    Kora,

    There won’t be a live broadcast of the event, but it’s likely that people will be blogging about it. I’ll post something here when I know more about this.

    Also, the plan is to have more of these events in other regions of the country. If you’d like to see one around the Miami area, let Steve know at http://www.classroom20wiki.com/LIVE+Locations .

    Best,
    Sarah
