Satellite events are held year round, open to anyone, and arranged by hosts around the world in partnership with the main OpenCon conference. Over 4000 people have attended OpenCon satellite events since 2014. Satellites often combine content, themes and ideas from the main meeting with locally arranged activities. They're the perfect way to learn and get involved in the community, and are an essential part of the OpenCon community.
This will be a virtual, free K-12 Open Educational Resources Teacher PD Offering. To register for this event, Building the K-12 OER Teacher Network on January 25, 2018, go to https://goo.gl/forms/InTGpgeu4tk2SfaM2
