Sept. 26 LAN Party Planning

2-3 hours to showcase previous presentations 2006-2008
post selected presentations to k12online blog
contact presenters to see if available
broadcast video and then leave for Q/A session for 10-15 mins before next presentation

our task is to select the presentations and contact the presenters for availability and to develop the schedule

goal is to begin to promote and spread the word about the upcoming conference

Equinox day with ETT? could be Sept. 26th? ours could be part of the webcastathon

Presenters: set up a wiki with a table so people can sign up for times

Drew is chair and responsible for coordinating our work
earlier presentations were much longer (1 hour) so might want to pull clips/excerpts or use trailers
key is to find people who can be available to discuss their presentation with participants-could be a skype conference call.

Durff is willing to set up a wiki page for the Sept. 26 LAN party scheduling; needs permission to access the wiki

Plan on Saturday after our regular meet-up for Classroom 2.0 LIVE

2:00pm Eastern-5:00pm Eastern (consider implications for people in late time zones like Thailand)

Hold webcasts on ETT-could be 2 hours
Alec Couros teaser rebroadcast and then discuss with the presenter online in the chat
Mark Wagner-
Matt Needleman
Kathy Cassidy
Seedlings (Alice Barr, Bob Sprankle, Cheryl Oakes-conf keynotes)
Jen Wagner/Kim Cofino -consider using them in a future LAN party when the time might work better for Kim
Silvia Tolisano

Additional thoughts...
once a month k12 show with Susan VanGelder on ETT to replace her show--really wants to start one up

K12Echo?? rebroadcast presentations and discuss or use as a precursor for upcoming conference

Next meetings: Susan will set up a Doodle to schedule a time.
Click on the link http://doodle.com/vvpifbrvakh95iux
You can change the time zone to see the actual time where you live.
Add your name, check the times you are available, click Save.

We'll find the times that suit most of us. Our first meeting via Skype will be on Tuesday, September 15 at 4:00 pm EDT (UTC Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 20:00:00)
Subsequent meetings will depend on what the doodle shows.

Drew was unavailable this weekend (no - I thought I'd said to Jose that I was away this weekend on a long standing commitment) Susan, can you add Drew to the doodle for a convenient meeting time?

Hi all,
Peggy and I met and worked on the wiki among other things.

Wiki has been updated http://k12onlineconferencelans.wikispaces.com/
We were feeling a little hemmed in by the 30 minute slots and thought 45 minutes would be more realistic. By the time you introduce the video plus presenter and put it in context at least 5 minutes is taken up. Then there is back channeling while the video plays, but you also need some time for Q & A after plus thanking the presenter for being available. It just seemed 45 minutes was more realistic.

Possible scenario for longer session:
3-4 minutes introduction/bio of presenter
20 min video segment (chat open during presentation on ustream/EdTechTalk)
10 min Q/A and chat with the presenter using guiding questions for facilitator/interviewer
3-4 minutes wrapup-tell about the conference, invite everyone to participate-use teaser?
We also felt we needed some time to talk about the K12 Online Conference for those who may not have heard of it before and to advertise the 2009 version.

We need to know - who is streaming on the 26th?
Who is taking what roles - we need two people for each presentation, one to introduce and question and the other to follow the chat
Should we all be available for the 3 hours or do we want to break it up?

Please add to the question page on the wiki - we need to have some questions available that we want to ask our guests
e.g. The videos were made 1 -3 years ago - How have you changed your practice since then?

Please add your suggestions for future events (October / November)

We have to set dates for the October / November events - possibility of different times to allow people from other parts of the world to participate

We need clarification on some points.

In the live events announcement - it talks about Second Life
Are we holding events in SL? or is it just that someone will stream there. If so someone would have to be present in SL for questions / chat / discussion

We are concerned about the 10 hours of synchronous streaming on the Saturdays of each week of the conference
we thought it might be better to break it up over the following year
it would give people an opportunity to attend all "live" sessions
it would tax the streamers less - this is a huge time commitment for both the streamers and conference attendees.

When will the 2009 teaser be ready? It would be nice to have something to show to entice people.

Some sessions will need editing - who will do it? I can do a bit - but time......

Why are we calling it a LAN party? (I know we are modeling it on Jeff Utecht's initiative )
It is really a WAN party - and people can come to the events to widen their network.

I think that's it. Peggy - if I missed anything - please add in another email.

If we can keep each other informed - how about meeting in another Skype call on Tuesday 22 at 7:00 pm EDT (11 pm UTC, 4:00 pm PDT). Everyone who replied to the Doodle said they were available at that time.
Keep adding to the wiki, the Skype chat.
