The official Squeakfest website is now live and ready for you to  
propose a presentation, workshop, or panel.


The dates for Squeakfest USA in Los Angeles CA are August 10, 11, 12.

The dates for Squeakfest Brasil in Porto Alegre RS are July 23, 24,  
25.   Also keep in mind that many of us will be attending nearby WCCE  
the following week (July 27 to 31).

The theme for this year's USA conference will be "Etoys in the  
classroom."  Our overall goal is to show how teachers are using Etoys  
to teach their full curriculum.  Whether language arts, math, science,  
or more, we hope to showcase the many ways Etoys can help teachers  
demonstrate abstract ideas easily.   If you've got experience teaching  
with Etoys, we'd love to hear about it, as would the attendees of the  
conference, many of whom will be elementary teachers.   We're also  
very interested in non-classroom Etoys use, particularly as it relates  
to OLPC pilots or homeschooling.

We'll be adding more information to the website as it becomes  
available, but for now, the important thing is to get your  
presentation information to us so we can begin to design the program  
for our three days together. Please complete and submit the online  
form no later than June 1st, 2009.

Please share this information with anyone you think would be  
interested in either Squeakfest conference.

We hope to see you there!

Take care,

Timothy Falconer
Squeakland Foundation
