K12 Online Conference 2007: "Announcing K12 Online 2007 Presenters"

Heads Up: here is the list of the presenters for the 2007 K12 Online Conference. I was a presenter last year and felt way out of my league. If this year's conference is anything like last year's, then it will be chuck full of great presentations. The conference is held over two weeks (Oct 15-19 and Oct 22-26) online. You can watch the presentations whenever you like. There are also Skype calls set up at particular times for synchronous attendance. The keynotes look awesome.

Be sure to check it out.
