      Interested in seeing where the sharing of KM reaches into the
      classroom? Take note of a free event coming up in the San Francisco
      Bay Area that focuses on bringing Web 2.0 tagging, rating, and social
      networking features to the development of educational materials for
      instructors and learners. The event is called the EdForum and it's
      sponsored by The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in
      Education (ISKME), a research group in Half Moon Bay, California. The
      title of the panel is "Customizing and Adapting Web-Based Educational
      Materials, and Changing Education in the Process."

      Date: Monday, February 12, 2007
      Networking Reception: 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm (refreshments served)
      Panel Discussion: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
      Location: 730 Harrison Street, San Francisco (WestEd)
      RSVP to edforum@... as seating is limited. Attendance is free.

      The music industry is being transformed by file sharing. Can the
      sharing and use of freely available educational resources online
      engage more educators in developing high-quality teaching tools and
      create more "aha" moments for students? Speakers include:

      • Stuart Sutton, Head of Research and Development for the Gateway to
      Educational Materials (GEM) and the Achievement Standards Network (ASN)
      • Francesca Rodriquez, Chief Operating Officer, Creative Commons
      • Kalei Ching, Teacher and Home School Parent
      • Contributing Moderator: Lisa Petrides, President, Institute for the
      Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME)

      As one example, the panel will discuss the cool new site
      www.oercommons.org(in beta), which is a teaching and learning network
      that brings social networking tools to educational resources online.

      For more information, you can contact Joy Marcus at the Institute for
      the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (www.iskme.org) (650)
