Jason Ohler was the absolute standout from this conference. He is teaching kids to write media narratives and his work is inspiring. More on this to come….
The conference is about revolutions and attempts to deal with the idea od the many ‘revolutions’ around using technology for learning. These ideas include classroom practice, pedagogy, teacher professional learning, coaching and administration. The keynotes have been excellent, standouts for me have been Diana Laufenberg and Bruce Dixon talking about innovative classroom practice which puts the learner at the centre of everything. A memorable quote is that teachers should just ‘shutup’ and let the learning go on.
This is a great way to use web 2.0 tools. worth a read definitely.
