Words can’t truly describe my excitement as I countdown the days to attend my very first iNACOL Virtual School Symposium #VSS12.
In October 2012, iNACOL’s Virtual School Symposium (VSS) will bring together over 2,000 representatives from national, state, district, private, and other virtual school programs to attend the premier K-12 online and blended learning conference. Experts in K-12 virtual education will have robust networking opportunities; learn about the latest trends, challenges and opportunities in e-learning; interact in session presentations; and gain access to the latest research and best practices reports.
VSS highlights the cutting-edge work in K-12 online education across the country. It is the only national conference focused solely on K-12 online and blended learning in such a comprehensive way, and the highest-level practitioners and policy-makers seeking to develop e-learning programs within educational institutions in the United States, Canada, Mexico and abroad attend it.
As a new virtual school principal, this symposium should serve as an outstanding opportunity to network with other virtual school leaders and academics. If only it can last for weeks, not just days!
And, I’ve been invited by Rob Darrow, iNACOL Director of Member Services, to help with a session titled, “The New Teachers Lounge: Collaborative Communication for Online Educators.” I’m hoping to bring my experiences and stories as an education blogger to this session and help others join the ranks in education blogging.
