2008 WebWise Conference on Libraries

First ePals Conference on Web 2.0 Tools for K12 Learners
July 15, 2008, in Boston was the first ePals conference: www.epals.com/conference
Learn about uses of the free tools and the social network of ePals from users in the US, Canada, Belize and Kenya. Because ePals is among the applications available on the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) from MIT, and from the Intel Classmate PC (targeting K-6 learners in third world countries), schools can find interesting partnerships, collaborations, or pen pals in third world countries. See: www.epals.com/conference for presentations, vod-cast interviews with some of the speakers, handouts, and discussions of sessions. ePals has automatic language translation embedded in the social network (so you can translate profiles written in other languages) and also has automatic language translation built into its SchoolMail.
