Great Websites!

Thanks to John McMillen over @ Techucation for posting this site on his blog. I have been reading this site over the weekend and I also shared it with my district leadership.

The site is a wiki called education2020. The main purpose of the site is to create and encourage dialogue around what education will look like in the year 2020.

The chart in the middle of the main page discusses Education 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0. With 3.0 being the goal for 2020. It is an excellent visual of where we have been, where we are (hopefully) and where we need to be.

The second website was also shared by John via Twitter. It is Educational Technology and Related Educational Conferences for January - August 2009. This site lists both online and face-to-face educational settings / conferences. This is a great resource for anyone looking to make connections and experience an event at a national level.

The Education 2020 site is making the round here as well. Our Assistant Superintendent of Instruction is using it with the District leadership Team.

Glad you are interested in the Education 2020 wiki.
I would encourage you to add your opinion. We need more and different voices and perspectives
