2012 Learning 2.0 Virtual Conference - August 20-24

Okay ---- Free is good ---- and ---- this free conference is being held online, in multiple time zones, over the course of five days!  It is being held in conjunction with Connected Educator Month, and will include an all-day virtual unconference (SocialEdCon online!) as well as a special educational start-up "pitchfire" event. 

This 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, marker 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), in pedagogy (from teaching to learning, social learning, social/educational networking, passion-based learning, learning how to learn, brain-based learning) and more!

If you join the Classroom 2.0 network you will be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates.  You do not need to join this network to attend, but doing so will also allow you to correspond with the presenters and other members, and to comment on sessions and discussions.
