Read.Write. Act. Virtual Conference

Posted by on February 2, 2009

This year, in order to reduce our carbon footprint and reach more participants, SCALE decided to offer our annual Read.Write. Act. Conference as a “virtual” event. I’m pleased to announce that registration for this year’s event will be FREE!  We see this year as a pilot event and hope you will join us to explore new ways to learn and come together as a community.

A few things about registration:

* Go to the link on our website and register.
* Set aside time at work, school, or home to participate in webinars on February 3rd, 4th, or 5th.
* Next week, we will send you a survey and ask you to sign up for individual workshops on one or all of the days.   Workshops will be scheduled between 11am and 6pm EST.
* After you return the workshop survey, we will send you links to the events you’ve selected and participant “how-to” attend basics.

We look forward to learning with you at SCALE’s first Read.Write. Act. Virtual Conference
