Internet @ Schools West is drawing near, and we're pleased to announce that Will Richardson, secondary school educator and frequent tech conference speaker, will kick off the Monterey, California, event October 24 with a keynote speech titled "The New Read/Write Web: Transforming the Classroom." Here's a description of his speech:

The World Wide Web is no longer just a place for seekers of information. It's a platform for content creators of all ages. Instead of only being able to read from the Web, we can write to the Web with Weblogs and wikis; broadcast with podcasting and video blogging; and create rich, collaborative communities of practice with ease. Veteran classroom teacher, technology supervisor, and ed-blogger Will Richardson shares an overview of tools that can foster this new literacy and a framework for integrating them into teaching practices.

For a look at the entire October 24-25 conference program and its four tracks—School Libraries at the Center of Learning, Practical and Professional Matters, Internet-based Technology & Information Trends, and Tapping Technology & the Web—click HERE. And then link to registration information!!
