5 Workshops I'd Love to Attend

My low quality list modeled on Merlin Mann's 5ives. Thanks to Chris Brogan for the topic idea.

5 Workshops I'd love to Attend:

1] The Bank is Open: Open source that is... Come post, tag, and share all of your rich tasks, presentations, lessons, group tests... in our new 'Open Source Teacher's Document Bank'...'

2] Teaching with your Cell Phone: Ten surefire cell-phone-camera lessons...

3] Desks be Gone!: How to 'edit' your classroom into an comfortable, adaptable, student-friendly learning environment...

4] For Whom the Bell Rings?: How modifying our high schools to open from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. will allow staff and students to create custom timetables...

5] Harnessing your Built-in Multi-Screen Data Projector: Who needs chalk when each classroom in your school is simulcasting live video events; hosting student-led software tutorials; partnering on global collaborative projects...

I love the idea of highschool from 8am-8pm. No one wants to have an 8am class. It would allow kids to actually get sleep and then come to school refreshed. It would also be great for kids who needed to work and still want to go to school.
