Teacher Education: How can our experiences in K-12 online inform teacher education, both in pre-service and in-service contexts?
  1. Value of blending synchronous and asynchronous learning: Letting learners time and place shift.

  3. Value of leaving educational / communication options open for presenters, to encourage diverse modalities of expression and let others use more tools.
