The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and Multimedia Instructional Network Delivery System (MINDS) are partnering for the fourth consecutive year to provide educators worldwide the opportunity to view streaming video of selected sessions from the 10th Annual K-12 School Networking Conference: Beyond Wires & Boxes: Using Technology for Transformation that is being held in Washington, DC, March 22 - 23, 2005. For the first time, MINDS is enhancing the online streaming video offering by collaborating with WebAIM to provide closed captioning services for the hearing impaired.
CoSN is a national organization with a mission to advance the K-12 education community's capacity to effectively use technology to improve teaching and learning. The organization's focus includes an initiative that supports Accessible Technologies for All Students through equal accessibility to information. The MINDS-WebAIM partnership helps CoSN advance their goal of making the Annual K-12 School Networking Conference sessions accessible to all viewers.
CoSN and MINDS will provide on-demand access to various conference sessions allowing CoSN to offer highlights of the conference and extend the "Beyond Wires and Boxes" experience to educators in school districts across the nation and around the world via streaming video.
The on-demand sessions help attendees make the most of their CoSN attendance and provide those who cannot attend information relevant to their administration and instructional goals and objectives. Register to view the free professional development sessions at http://cosn.minds.tv. The CoSN sessions will be available from April 1, 2005 to September 30, 2005 at this location.
