This is held every two years, and has grown to become one of the world’s leading conferences on learning and global development - bringing together ministers of education, and practitioners from across the commonwealth.
We are asked to present - in 20 minutes - on how our mobile learning might be used across the 3rd world countries represented. it was all recorded, and streamed on Teachers.TV so as soon as we get a video we will upload and share it.
The event brought together an amazing number of real innovators from across the world. Some of my top items were:
- Community radio stations, broadcasting learning to kids who couldn't get to school
- Learning = saving lives (HIV/Aids awareness campaigns)
- using drama and dance to teach all sorts of other subjects
- strong drive for more "open and shared" resources
Needless to say, being able to showcase all our mobile learning resources running on the $100 laptop (OLPC) was a huge hit!
