Friday - Final Day of the Learning 2.0 Conference with Sugata Mitra, Audrey Watters, Angela Maiers, Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, Heidi Hayes Jacobs, and More!

This is it! The fifth and final day of our virtual (and free) Learning 2.0 Conference. Tonight we almost reached 5,000 attendee logins for the week--wahoo! And have we got a great day planned for you!

Sugata Mitra tells us about students teaching themselves. Audrey Watters denounces robot learning. Angela Meiers reminds us that we matter. Heidi Hayes Jacobs reappears after a scheduling snafu. Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach explains the connection between "Connected Educator Month" and her book, The Connected Educator. And we'll have our now-traditional conference closing celebration, where virtual treats are shared, and we learn from you what your big take-ways have been and what we should plan for next time.

Details on these great keynotes (and the recordings from previous days) are at
