I typically use this topic page for sharing information from others, but this week I'll be using it to blog my experiences at the 2012 eXtension National Conference in Oklahoma City, OK.
eXtension (http://www.extension.org) is a great example of how cooperative extension can work differently, and this conference will highlight some of the new ways extension educators are doing just that.
I arrived in OKC a bit early. The conference gets underway tomorrow. This morning I attended a meeting of the Network Literacy Community of Practice (http://www.extension.org/network_literacy).
"The Network Literacy Community of Practice aims to build a community around learning in online networked environments. This community will use available/emerging networks, technology, and information to form the community and engage others." In short, we help you connect; connect for learning, connect for sharing and connect to engage the people you serve.
You can start by connecting with us.
