Thursday - Day Four of the Learning 2.0 Conference with Gina Bianchini, Yong Zhao, and More!

Hard to believe we're at day four of the virtual (and free) Learning 2.0 Conference. We have some great sessions and keynotes for you! Don't miss Gina Bianchini talking about Ning, Mightybell, and creating social software that educators love. Yong Zhao tells us about the ideas from his newest book, World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Students. David Loertscher leads an all-star panel of librarians--Gwyneth Jones, Michelle Luhtala,Shannon Miller, and Joyce Valenza--to talk about technology and librarians. And I interview Gordon Dryden on the newest version of his incredible best-selling UNLIMITED: The New Learning Revolution and the Seven Keys to Unlock It. Details on these and other great keynotes (and the recordings from previous days) are at
