Virtual Conference – Learning 2.0 Rethinking learning and teaching in the age of the internet


Learning 2.0 (http://www.learning20.com)
August 20 – 24, 2012

Just announced! This conference has a short lead time (right around the corner!), but this is so that it can be part of Connected Educator Month, a month-long set of terrific activities to help educators connect with each other.

Learning 2.0 is a unique chance to participate in a global conversation on rethinking teaching and learning in the age of the Internet. Subject strands include changes in the classroom (social media, 1:1 computing, “flipped classrooms,” digital literacy, maker spaces, gaming, open educational resources, digital textbooks), in student learning (individualized learning, student-directed learning, “hacking” education, personal success plans, ePortfolios, and building a digital presence), in teacher personal and professional growth (lead learning, personal learning networks, peer / open / self-directed PD), in schools (virtual and online schooling, mobile learning, blended learning, MOOCs, immersive environments, learning spaces, entrepreneurship, school leadership, big data, assessment models), and in pedagogy (from teaching to learning, social learning, social / educational networking, passion-based learning, learning how to learn, brain-based learning). A full strand list is available 
HERE.

The conference will also include an all-day virtual unconference (SocialEdCon online!) as well as a special educational start-up “pitchfire” event.
