  1. Hello Kirsten,

    I cut and pasted a story of yours about Art2Heart and then realized later that I may have needed to get permission. I am new to blogging and am a little technology challenged. I hope that it was okay to have posted this on my blog. I later(today) edited the post and added your blog’s name onto the post to give you credit. I will take it down if I need to. Thank you so much for spreading the word. I had heard about Nance program and have exchanged several emails with her about a project I am sending her. She seems to be such a kind and gracious person.
    best wishes,

  3. Ready to blog at ILC 2008?

    As a blogger interested in education and technology, you are well aware that today’s educators face an incredible challenge every day to keep their tech-savvy (and easily distracted) students engaged. They are struggling to balance razor-thin budgets against the need to improve teaching strategies and must rely on constantly-changing technology to achieve success in the classroom.

    Next month, they’ll have an outstanding opportunity to ease their burden.

    The Innovative Learning Conference (ILC) 2008, will be held October 14-16, 2008, at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif., and is devoted to sharing innovative educational strategies for advancing K-12 student achievement.

    The conference offers public and private K-12 educators the opportunity to learn and share best practices for the integration of technology into the 21st-century classroom. More than 150 concurrent sessions and over 60 workshops will provide outstanding professional development opportunities and demonstrate innovative strategies, applications and best practices.

    The conference will also feature an expansive exhibit hall where attendees can view the latest products and services from some of the nation’s leading technology companies. More than 100 leading solution providers will attend, including sponsors Discovery Education, Pearson, ByteSpeed and SMART Technologies.

    ILC 2008 will feature Danny Forster, host of Discovery Channel’s “Build it Bigger,” as the Opening Keynote Speaker.

    I hope you will consider sharing this information with your readers (and, of course, attending the conference yourself). ILC 2008 is a resource available to all educators, administrators and technology leaders to experience first-hand the future of educational technology. Registration is taking place NOW, with an early-bird discount available through September 19.

    For more information on the conference, including the complete list of exhibitors, the conference agenda, attendee registration and press information – as well as to request press credentials to attend and cover ILC 2008 yourself (at no charge) – please visit http://www.ilc2008.org. If you have any questions, please contact me at (850) 386-9100 or email ILCpress@1105media.com.

    Thank you … and I hope to see you at ILC 2008.
