Coming up this week: LIFT08
We're suffering a tad of jetlag as we moved last night from Alligator Alley to snowy Switzerland for LIFT, yet another unconferencey three days where I hope to learn from colleagues and see where Learning and Teaching Scotland, schools and Local Authorities might want to go next.
My co-attendees have voted me in to speak in an Open Stage talk, on how why 'open education' is important and how LIFT-ers can help make a difference where they live. It'll be filmed by Swiss TV and hopefully put online. I'll also be co-hosting a discussion/launch of the idea of the Institute for Social Media, or I4SM, which I've had a role in founding with the Manchester Business School. Thursday morning's going to be busy!
If you're happy with a slightly geeky week here on edu.blogs.com, then please do stay for some fondue. Otherwise, you may find the posts I write on Connected Live a bit more education-focused and comprehensible.
