The CUE Conference in Palm Springs has been filled with lots of great networking opportunities. On Thursday evening, the E-Learning Significant Interest Group or El Sig met. The room was filled with people from schools, districts and company representatives whose common goal is to help others to learn the power of online learning for students in California.
At the conference, CUE became the first affiliate of iNacol – the international K-12 online learning organization. Allison Powell, the VP of iNacol was here to help celebrate.
Allison joined us at the El Sig reception and met Joshua Marks from Curriki. Joshua asked Allison what Curriki had to do to become a partner of iNacol. Allison took out one of her business cards and handed it to Joshua and said, “Now we are partners!” The picture below records this moment. The important part of this, aside from great organizations networking with one another, is it illustrates the Web 2.0 philosophy of collaboration and sharing. This collaboration and sharing is what will change education – to make it more engaging for all students!
