Hey makers! Don't forget that the K12 Online Conference this year has a maker ed strand, and you are invited to present! (It's all video so no travel needed.)

Proposals due May 31!

I want to invite you all to participate in the Maker Ed strand of the K12 Online Conference this year.

If you aren't familiar with the K12 Online Conference, it is a virtual conference for teachers that is held in October.  It is a completely free and all-volunteer run, noncommercial professional learning event.

A "presentation" for our conference is a 20-minute, pre-produced video segment (for asynchronous viewing).  The format is up to you, and we encourage the inclusion of youth voices. All of our sessions are open licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license.

Proposals are due May 31.

If you have questions, drop me a note, and I'd be happy to chat more about it.

Thanks! (And please help spread the word about this great event.)
The 2015 K12 Online Conference organizer team is pleased to announce the theme for this year's conference: Virtually Unstoppable. Please consider submitting your session ideas via our call for proposals. Since 2006, K12 Online has offered unique, free, entirely volunteer-powered opportunities ...

This place is the best thing in Dayton. Great classes; great staff; great studio. Go -- you'll be glad you did! Namaste.

We were recently driving through Tennessee and were happy to find this restaurant. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. This was a great find in an otherwise boring bunch of chain restaurants in town.

We love Galiano's. Great smoothies, food, and coffee -- and a comfortable space to just hang out. This is just what Douglas needed!

What a delightful surprise to find this restaurant in the old Wimpy's building in downtown Dayton. The food was local and delicious, a carefully designed menu of excellence! BYOB. And the restaurant is very small, so make sure to make reservations in advance. We hope they open a bigger 2nd location soon!

I've been coming to the Winds for over 20 years, since it was in the old location, and it has been excellent throughout. Now that I live out of town, I always try to take time to go to the Winds when I'm in town. The food is healthy, local, and most importantly, delicious. If you're in town, definitely make a trip to the Winds for a dinner to remember.

We have bought two fireplaces at Earth Energy's Fireplaces. Both times their service and product were top-rate. Their staff is professional and well-informed. Because we live far from Tucson, they have been able to help us with extra services like shipping us extra parts we needed and even waiting for us past regular hours to accommodate us. This is the first place I'd go in AZ if I needed a fireplace or related products.
