Podcast #177 - Review of Smithsonian's Online Lincoln Conference

Hello. Today I review a conference I recently attended - the Smithsonian's Online Lincoln Conference. Besides the high quality content, the best features of this conference were the cost (free) and location (my desktop computer). In the podcast I discuss my personal experience in attending the sessions, which sessions I enjoyed most and the concept of virtually attending an online conference.

If you were not able to attend the conference on February 4-5, 2009 you can still view any of the nine sessions from the archive. Resources from the sessions and an active discussion board are also available online.

Did you attend any of the sessions? If you did I would enjoy hearing about your experiences. Please add a comment to this blog post.


  1. Hi there - I've been following your blog for awhile. It's great to get ideas from another history teacher who's putting their ideas on-line. If you're interested, please check out some of the history work I'm doing in my classroom.

    Keep it up!

  2. Thanks Neil - I just added your blog to my reader. Can't wait to read about how you are using technology in your classroom. Just spent a minute there to browse before posting this and it looks like we share a lot of the same interests. Thanks.
