We all connect for instruction and learning on a daily basis. We share information about things we have experienced, suggest, indicate, or offer advice on how to do things, where to go, and so much more. We spend most of our waking hours communicating our experiences to strangers, acquaintances, friends, colleagues, and family through conversations (see Contagious by Jonah Berger).
Technology is facilitating the process by making the daily task of the conversations more efficient and more effective. We connect using programs and apps installed in smart devices and computers via the Internet. We connect online for instruction and learning. Connecting online conferences allow people to share those experiences in numbers unheard of through Massive Open Online Conferences (MOOCs).
Connecting Online Conferences (CO09-CO15) have been the highlight of many educators for the past 5 years. Connecting Online brings educators from around the globe learn together in a live online class called WizIQ. The event takes place on the first full weekend of February. You’re invited to join the 6th annual Connecting Online (CO15) conference on WizIQ. The presentations focus on instruction and learning. They given by educators for educators.
The conference focuses on how educators are connecting online for instruction and learning. Connecting Online is a 3-day conference that started in 2009 as CO09. One very special highlight of connecting online conference of CO13 is a book called Connecting Online for Instruction and Learning.
