just sign up for the educators account. I already had an account and have been singing its praises for some time to my fellow educators. I very interested in how it will work and play out with the children.

I would love to attend, but will be at work during this time. Will it be archived?

I will be hosting an evening event at our school at that time. I would love to view it later if that is possible.

Should be... It's a Elluminate session.

We can also do more sessions later, including basic vs. advanced topics... Meanwhile, join us at this group:

I can't seem to get the elluminate platform to work with my IE7 or firefox, so I won't be attending. I check out the archive though. Thanks.
