Note: there are a-whole-lotta links on this page.  To find something in particular without scrolling up and down, use CTRL-F (in Windows) or Apple-F (on a Mac) to search for a given term on the page.

In addition to the keynote, I'll be presenting five times on a variety of topics.  You are invited to any and all of them, but I particularly request your attendance at the final on at 11:30 on Friday.  At that session, we will see the finalists of the NETA-Next Vista for Learning Nebraska 90-Second Video Contest, and you'll choose the winner!

The Next Vista Newsletter
Sign up here for this monthly goodie bag.  It arrives in your inbox with new videos in the library, cool tools I've run across, projects teachers can join, and more.  If you don't like it, you can unsubscribe and I'll remove you without even a grimace.  Also, we certainly never share names and e-mail addresses with any other organization; our goal is pretty much to get whatever feedback we can to make the online library at better.

If your school or district has a hyper-sensitive filtering system (Barracuda Networks), I'd advise providing a web-based address (gmail, yahoo, etc.).  Can't share goodies if my notes can't get to you, after all.

Messages from our newsletter system come from this address which I encourage you to add to your contacts:
