The K12 Online Conference 2006 (http://k12onlineconference.org) is a free conference for educators worldwide held online and focused on the theme of “unleashing the potential” of web 2.0 technologies in schools. In Fall 2006, the conveners who comprise this panel organized the first K12 Online Conference as a free event incorporating both web-posted, asynchronously accessed presentation content as well as a series of live events for presenters and participants. This panel will provide a forum for conference conveners to share their experiences and “lessons learned” from this well attended and successful international learning event.
