Do we have anyone in the Indiana area who could go to the K-12 Open Minds Conference? It is in Michigan City Indiana on October 6-7. It is free and they still need presenters (SoaS or Contributors Program anyone?). Here is their website:
I have already submitted a proposal for a 1-hour session at the CUE conference mentioned later in this email. It is in March and we won't know if it has been approved until mid-November. Cross your fingers!

> A message to all members of Classroom 2.0
> OK, here are two great opportunities around Open Source Software for K-12 that are coming up SOON!
> 1. The K-12 Open Minds Conference in Indiana, which had an uncertain future after changes in the Indiana Department of Ed, is BACK ON! Not only is it on, but the format is changing in some really GREAT ways.
> First, the conference is now free. Really, free. No registration fee. :)
> Second, Michigan City Area Schools are hosting the event (significantly contributing to the "fre part!). So join us on October 6th and 7th, 2009 in Michigan City (Indiana) for the third annual K-12 Open Minds Conference about Open Source in K-12 Education.
> Third, the conference will now include both formal sessions and informal sessions--including conversations and gatherings around topics of interest in various areas of Open Source. So come to learn and/or present, and to share experiences and projects related to open technologies on a variety of topics such as teaching and learning, leadership, and technical issues.
> Conference Website: http://k12openminds.org to register (presenters still wanted and very much encouraged!)
> 2. For the fourth year in a row, the 2010 Computer Using Educators (CUE) annual conference will have an Open Source Pavilion and formal speaker series. Yeah for CUE!
> AND there is only 1 week left to submit a proposal to speak at CUE. We need great speaker proposals on Open Source in K-12 at this conference, so please consider submitting to present! Please submit online by next Friday, September 11th, at: http://www.cue.org/conference/present.
> If you're interested in Open Source Software, hope you'll consider either or both of the opportunities.
