Netbook Summit, May 24-25, 2010 at the South San Francisco Hyatt. We are looking for educators that are working with Netbooks in their classrooms we need your expertsie to share with the Netbook makers and software providers. This would be a good venue to make comparisons and understand the functionality of the Netbook products and the future of Netbooks.
If you are working as the technology administrator or IT professional we are looking for speakers from your groups to share what is working and what is needed and also how you feel about ebooks, storage, security, and training for teachers.
I attended a teachers technology conference recently and had several discussions with teachers who felt uncomforatable with the computer deployments and ebooks as there was little to no training for them. They were also a little intimiated by the students who seemed to have so much more expertise with computers. The training seemed to be dependent of course on the size of the school district and funding. (Just a topic I want to make sure to address at the conference)
We want to make this event a valuable tool not a replacement for any teaching event, this is strictly Netbook focused wth all the peripherals that go with it. There are Keynotes, Sessions, and an Exhibit floor.
