What is it?

As night falls across the planet, educators across the globe are encouraged to participate in the K12 Online culminating event, When Night Falls. This event will be a 24 hour opportunity for participants in the 2007 K12 Online conference to gather around a virtual water cooler or have a virtual shared coffee break (in an Elluminate room), to reflect and connect with friends, both old and new, about their experiences at K12 Online 2007.

The purpose of When Night Falls is twofold:
  1. To give participants an opportunity to share reflections, to build networks and relationships and to make connections with each other. Some of the connections people make at K12 Online will grow into global collaborations for students and support networks for all of us as we continue to push the boundaries of teaching and learning in the 21st century.
  2. To get feedback on this year’s conference as we begin to plan for next year.

When is it?

When Night Falls will begin on 12:00 AM Saturday, October 27 GMT. (To see what time this begins in your time zone - World Time Converter)

How can I participate?

Become a moderator

Since When Night Falls is going to run for 24 hours, we're looking for people who are willing to volunteer to be moderators for this event for an hour session or more!

In brief, we are asking each moderator to:
  • host and moderate an Elluminate session for 1-2 hours -- if you don't know how to do that, we'll teach you!
  • record some information on a wiki, over the course of their show, solicited from the participants, to help us create an even better experience next year. Ask people to share their:
    • bouquets (what we did well)
    • brickbats (what we didn't do well)
    • suggestions for next year
  • write a 200 word or less summary on the wiki of what the discussion was about during your segment.
  • record the session. If you don't know how to do that, we'll teach you!
  • encourage those who haven't registered on the Conference Attendr Map to do so---indicating their participation by entering their location and blog address.[[http://attendr.com/k12online07|]]
