K-12 is coming to get you

Think of it:
1. a free online conference
2. it deals with the future and the present; kids today are experimenting with social software at a pace that outstrips us
3. the pace of their experimentation does not bode well for future educators - if through K-12 these kids are immersed in a world of "connections" then they get to university and are stuck within a walled space with people they did not choose to socialize with listening to one person spouting out one view of the world as they see it?
4. catch some - if you can
