Human Potential in the Age of Exponential Tech

November Learning BLC10, Boston (July 16)

I’m off to Boston to keynote at the November Learning BLC10 Conference tomorrow. I’m pretty excited for a few reasons. Firstly, this will be my first Misfits themed talk!

The focus on my keynote will be on the impact technology is having on education and I’ll be highlighting some of the emerging gaps in educational system and how emerging collaborative models are changing the way people are learning. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the subject so far (more on that in another post) and I have to tell you it’s completely fascinating!

Secondly, I’m really excited to do some shopping. The shopping scene in Geneva is a little…limited. I can’t wait to go down there and do my part to help the economy.

About November Learning:

November Learning promotes effective use of information and communication technologies to support and enhance learning. The 2010 Building Learning Communities Conference is designed to have an immediate and long range impact on improving teaching and learning. What first started as a ‘jam session’ of ideas between friends and education colleagues has grown into something truly special.

I spoke with Alan November about some of the issues surrounding the challenges facing educators today as they navigate the wacky world of social media.

    Thanks for the great keynote at BLC. I believe we in education can learn do a lot more to leverage the use of online communities and networks to change our schools. I love have you framed the whole idea about creating online communities to create offline action. Something I need to think more about in my own talks with educators and at my own school.

    I’m in International Educator based in Bangkok, Thailand and consult with schools as well around the world. As you’re working on your book let me know if there is anything I can do to help with an international perspective. A world of unfiltered opportunities.

    Thanks again for your message!
