This website has a calendar that includes Classroom 2.0, Future of Education, EdTechTalk, LearnCentral TV, and Edublogs Live Events. Don't forget to check the Archive link at the top of the page. I recently listened to Heidi Hayes Jacobs talk about Curriculum 21!
Discovery Education has a a variety of materials and resources for teachers. The Discovery Educator Network (DEN) has webinars (and as with LearnCentral TV, check for archives!) The DEN blog also has archives and great ideas.
