    Thanks for posting about this, halfateacher--it's been so interesting (nice to do PD with a cold beverage by my side as I sit with my feet up on the couch!)--definitely lots to think about further.

    I'm wondering, too...came in too late. :) How long does the Symposium last? Thanks for making aware of it. :)

    The last session is just finishing up right now... then there's a "closing ceremony" not sure what that looks like. It's in the same room as the link that I had listed above for the last presentation.

    Ok... I'm about to watch George Couros' presentation again. You can find it at his blog... seriously, it was my FAVOURITE! I've been having a lot of fun talking to him on twitter.

    Here's a link to his blog, which has a link to the archive: http://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/978#comments

    Here's a list of links to presentations. I think that you may have to fast forward through the first part of some, if not all, as it seemed to record the pre-session chatter as well.
