The Social Learning Summit – April 21st, 2012


The Social Learning Summit

We are very pleased to announce the call for participation for the worldwide 2012 Social Learning Summit, a one-day virtual conference being held as a partnership of Classroom 2.0 and the Discovery Educator Network, on Saturday, April 21st, 2012. This is a free event, with a focus on inclusion and participation.

The conference theme is the use of social media and Web 2.0 in teaching and learning, and the conference URL is http://www.SocialLearningSummit.com. To be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please make sure you are a member here at Classroom 2.0. This will also allow you to correspond with the presenters and other members, and to comment on sessions and discussions.The call for presentations is open and is HERE. Presentations proposals that have been submitted already can be seen HERE.

Sessions will be 30 minutes in length, and can focus on practical classroom application or pedagogical frameworks or both. Please do not submit a session if your are a vendor or a vendor representative. While presentation proposals will be accepted through April 7th, session acceptances will start to be issued on March 26th, at which time presenters will be given a chance to use a scheduling calendar to pick an available time to present. All sessions will be held in Blackboard Collaborate (previously Elluminate), and training sessions will be available both “live” and in recorded form.

We particularly encourage those who are working on (or have completed!) chapters or the 5th-anniversary Classroom 2.0 book project to present, and for those presenting to consider producing a book chapter! Because this adds preparation time, we are extending the book chapter deadline from this Thursday, March 15th, to the date of the conference, April 21st. For those who have already submitted their chapters (and what a great batch we have received so far!), we’ll arrange some special treatment for you as a reward for your good work!

See you online!
