Internet at Schools West 2009 is happening next October 26 and 27 in Monterey, California. The program will share Internet pioneer and Google Chief Internet Evangelist Vint Cerf as keynote speaker with the concurrent and co-located Internet Librarian conference, and will feature sessions like:

  • Trying Not to Filter: Internet Filtering Technologies Update
  • Social Learning for Students and Teachers
  • Gaming in the Library: The Hows and Whys
  • Open Educational Resources: Join the Global Education Community
  • Expanding the Concept of Library

… and more! The Advance Program is now available online.

Here's what we're saying about it at the conference website: 

It’s 2009, and the winds of change—policy change, technology change, funding change, and more—are blowing through all aspects of K-12 education. That includes, of course, those areas where you, the library media and technology specialists, are practicing your craft … teaching, learning, advising, supporting, collaborating. Your efforts and your programs must remain at the forefront as the education community ramps up in these difficult and fluid times to equip all students for life in the 21st century. What a challenge!

To help you meet that challenge, we suggest you join us at Internet@Schools West! where you can network face-to-face with presenters and attendees addressing the same challenge, even while you blog, twitter, or text with colleagues far afield. We’ll have another information-packed 2-day event for you in Monterey, with an opening keynote plus tracks and sessions on the latest school library information and technology trends, tools, and issues. You’ll be well served and stoked with ideas to take back to your school and media center.

Internet@Schools West, sponsored by MultiMedia & Internet@Schools magazine, will be held in Monterey, CA on Monday and Tuesday, October 26-27, 2009, in conjunction with Internet Librarian 2009, so attendees can participate in the co-located Internet Librarian conference at a reduced rate and take maximum advantage of the Internet Librarian Exhibit Hall. Join us!
