Peggy George is an consistent supporter (via her presence) at Learning2gether events and this evening I was pleased to have her in discussion about k12onlineconference.org, and about the Flat Classroom Project, and about Earthbridges.net, and about Classroom 2.0, and so many other things passionate in education.
I just tweeted
The recording in Elluminate of #learning2gether with Peggy @pgeorge talking about #k12online was gr8 - You didn't even have to be there, check out http://tinyurl.com/2011dec04pgeorge
Well worth a listen imho (but who am I?) ...

> Peggy George is a retired elementary school principal and university pre-service education professor in Phoenix, AZ who is currently one of the co-hosts for the weekly Classroom 2.0 LIVE webinars on web 2.0 tools for educators. She describes herself as one of the conference "workerbees" otherwise known as an "organizer." The main creator/convener is Wes Fryer and there are 4 strands to the conference, each with their own conveners. Peggy's main responsibility right now is to upload the presentations daily to iTunesU at the same time they go live on the blog. There's a video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n55pl4oUwe0 that shows how to subscribe to Classroom 2.0 iTunesU recordings, and I'm sure Peggy will show us how to do that for K12 recordings as well. Specific instructions for subscribing to the K12 Online Conference iTunesU recordings can be found here: http://k12onlineconference.org/?p=646
> Peggy might also do a web tour of the conference blog and even play a teaser video in web tour which would open it in participant browsers. She can also show us the slides she prepared for a Classroom 2.0 LIVE show Nov 12 with Kim Caise and Lorna Constantini. This is the link to the blog post with the recording, chat, links, and LiveBinders link with all links shared during the session.
