I'm here in Berlin for Onine Educa. The pre-conference workshops take place today and I'm going to be dropping in on Jay Cross's "Informal Learning + Web 2.0 = Social Learning Breakthroughs" this afternoon).
The conference programme starts tomorrow, and I'm going to be involved in a number of sessions:
- Tools of the Trade (in the Creating the New Era of Corporate Learning stream)
"In this session Jane will demonstrate some of the best tools for social learning on the site. The session will provide you with a clear understanding of which social learning tools are available and fit-for-purpose for corporate use. Jane will discuss what tools organisations are using, and will provide practical advice on getting started and setting up informal and social learning tools so they add value to your organisation."
Time: December 3rd 1630-1730 CET
Note: this session is one of those that is free for LearnTrends members to attend virtually. Find out more here. If you can't make it in person or virtually, I'll be making my slides available tomorrow morning and inviting contributions via Twitter.
- 12 x 3D Tools for Education, Training & Collaboration (in the EU 3D: Ctrl+Alt+Delete session, chaired by Donald Clark and also including Chris Branningam CEO of Caspain Learning.
"In my presentation I'll be offering my pick of 12 tools for creating 3D characters, 3D environments and virtual worlds - for those who are dipping their toes into the water as well as those who are looking for high-end solutions."
Time: December 4th 1145-1300 CET
Note: I'll be making my presentation slides available on Friday too for those who won't be able to join us live.
- Battle of the Bloggers
I'll be on the panel alongside Donald Clark, Ellen Wagner and Clive Shepherd and chaired by Bert de Coutere to "discuss some of the key issues arising at ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN 2009". Should be entertaining!
