What Were the Big Picture and Practical Classroom “take aways” from the Learning 2.008 Conference?
Some take aways from the discussion>
The need to prepare teachers for progressive conferences like Learning 2.008. Scaffold the process so they will take time for the networking, unconferencing and reflection portions of conferences like Learning 2.008.
Look to have regular presentation sessions that lead out into and scaffold into unconference sessions
Look to shift our regular presentations in the way we organize the rooms and work to make them more discussion focused
Need to differentiate for the “shiftedness” continuum of the participants
