What if you held a conference and attendees came from every part of the world? The K12 Online conference concludes this weekend with just such a culminating event–a 24 hour around the world online chat known as “When Night Falls.”

To “illustrate” that event, the conference organizers have invited participants to join a new flickr group, When Night Falls, and share photographs of night falling around the world.

The photographs already posted are from places as diverse as Canada, Australia, Bangkok, and even Texas. It’s awe-inspiring to look through the photographs and realize that educators from all of the places pictured are attending this conference–it makes it much more concrete how global the conference is.

So, add photos from your corner of the world–Join flickr if you aren’t a member, then head to this wiki(http://whennightfalls07.wikispaces.com/Adding+Your+Photo) for instructions on how to add your photo to the group. Remember to tag it with k12online07 and whennightfalls as well.

Join the global community and watch night fall around the planet!

Thanks for posting this, Carolyn. It's been a great conference!
Darren,

No problem! I think the photo sharing was a really incredible idea. It's so powerful to see photos from all over the globe, and think that all these people are participating.
