CONNECT: a free synchronous and asynchronous online conference for teachers
and education professionals
May 18–20, 2007
Webheads in Action <http://webheads.info>, a world-wide cross-cultural
online community of several hundred ESL/EFL educators and other
professionals, invites your participation in CONNECT: Conversations on
Networking, Education, Communities, and Technology, a unique conference to
be held entirely online May 18–20, 2007.
The conference is called a convergence because it is intended to be a fair
or festival in which many communities of colleagues converge to celebrate
with us by presenting their work in a wide variety of formats. Participation
is free and open to all who are interested. Keynote speakers include Stephen
Downes, George Siemens, Etienne Wenger, Barbara Ganley, Teemu Leinonen, and
Leigh Blackall. More information is available at <http://wiaoc.org> or
