Today's SLAV Conference: Perspectives on learning V2 was extremely enjoyable - intense and inspiring at once, confronting to all educators. I was thinking that it was a pity there were not more teachers, since SLAV is obviously attended mainly by teacher librarians and librarians. Will Richardson's talk about network literacy was compelling and challenging, and his subsequent presentations, 'Podcast, Vodcast, Screencast, LiveStream Nation', and 'Web 2.0 tools and resources' gave a wealth of information, and hopefully made a shift in the thinking of educators present. Jenny Luca's talk was a passionate account about how Web 2.0 is not about technology itself, but the networks of people you can connect to. She spoke compellingly about the authentic learning she has instigated in her school using global networks.
There were two other speakers, Adrian Camm and John Pearce, whose presentations I didn't attend.
