I took part in a number of sessions in the recent future of education conference. http://umanitoba.ca/learning_technologies/conferences/foe/schedule.php
The speakers presented their own perspectives on the future and this was discussed during and after the session.
I really enjoyed participating and am in the process of reflecting on the sessions in order that I can make sense of what was discussed and apply to my own context.
Something that struck me during the live sessions that may be missed when revisiting the content was the amount of humour that was shared between participants on the discussion board and via private messages sent from 1 participant to another. I felt a real sense of community and belonging during the sessions. Thanks to everyone involved.
