MOREnet Announces Keynotes for this October’s M3 Annual Conference

MOREnet is excited to announce two of our headliners for this year’s M3 Annual Conference, Oct. 14 – 17 at Tan-Tar-A in Osage Beach, Missouri.

Chris Lehmann will be kicking off our Instructional Technology portion of the M3 Conference on Monday, Oct. 14 with his keynote, Building School 2.0: Creating the Schools We Need.

Chris Lehmann is the founding principal of the Science Leadership Academy, a progressive science and technology high school in Philadelphia, Pa. The Science Leadership Academy is an inquiry-driven, project-based, 1:1 laptop school that is considered to be one of the pioneers of the School 2.0 movement nationally and internationally. The school was recognized by Ladies Home Journal as one of the Ten Most Amazing Schools in the US, has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School in 2009 and 2010 and has been written about in many publications including Edutopia Magazine, EdWeek and the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Tim Gard will present on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at the Technical portion of the M3 Conference.

During the last decade, Tim has delivered his entertaining, informative presentations nationally and internationally, speaking to government groups, professional associations, and corporations of every kind. Through his work he expands the understanding of humor skills as stress reduction tools. His development of easy-to-implement techniques has inspired action from publishers, television, and radio talk shows around the world. His methods and techniques are an effective way to deal with, diffuse, and even avoid intensely stressful encounters that can—and often do—occur every day.

Call for Presentations is Now Open

MOREnet is looking for presentation proposals that will broaden attendee’s knowledge on today's hot topics and tools in information technology, security and instructional technology.

Virtual Servers

After our February Web Seminar on MOREnet’s Service Packages, we received several questions regarding our Virtual Server Service. Because of this, we have decided to make Virtual Servers our Featured Service for the month of March.MOREnet’s Virtual Server service allow subscribers to run many of their existing services on a remotely located server, avoiding the cost of buying and upgrading servers. A virtual server can cost 5 to 33 percent of an equivalent, dedicated physical server and runs on a secure, hardened data center which is administered by MOREnet.
