Professional Learning in Your Pajamas!

Welcome to the final week of July.  Hope you are staying cool, enjoying the summer, and getting a bit of a rest.

I'd like to invite you to join me and thousands of others for a free worldwide online e-conference dubbed RSCON3 on Education Reform.  It takes place from Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31.  It's my kind of conference because you can attend it in your pajamas

, swimsuit, or whatever suit you choose to wear right in the comfort of your home.

There are more than 65 presentations and 12 keynote speakers throughout the three days, representing some of the best education reform thinkers around the world. You can browse through the flyer at

Registration and additional information is at http://tinyurl.com/2ftmgsz.

Browse through the schedule and select a session or two you feel might be interesting, or just attend any session to experience your first ever online. e-conference.  Remember when reading the session schedule (Google Doc) you have to select the time zone (select New York - UTC-4) since this is a world-wide program, or you will get the wrong times for each session.

I'm honored to be part of a panel presentation on Friday, July 29, from 2:30-3:30 pm (times are 24-hour military format in the schedule). I'll be online live from up here at Camp Greenwood, somewhere west of Greenville, Michigan, in between cleaning up from lunch and helping in the kitchen prepare supper for a bunch of hungry Rebel band campers. Here's hoping my internet connection out here in the sticks holds up well on Friday, especially if the expected thundershowers appear.

Anyway, the entire weekend has an awesome lineup and you won't be disappointed by any of the sessions.  And if you are, simply "leave the room" when you please and few, if any, will notice.  Just another great advantage to an e-conference.
