  conference.  A goal of the conference is to bring together the cyberlearning R&D community

  and K-12 educators to learn with and from each other.


  We welcome principal investigators, project teams and K-12 educators to attend and present

  at the conference. The conference will allow you to network with others working in the

  exciting field of cyberlearning, demo your work, and share best practices. We currently are

  accepting proposals for breakout sessions, hands-on demos, professional development, focus

  groups, and more. You are welcome to submit proposals for more than one type of session.
