Learning Revolution Conference Schedule - Online and Free NEXT WEEK

Our first-ever Learning Revolution Conference kicks off this coming Monday, April 20th, online and free, with a terrific set of keynote and distinguished speakers and a full day of conference sessions on Thursday, April 24th. The schedule is below.

Please forward to your friends and colleagues - this event is free!

The project has over 200 partner organizations and bridges schools, libraries, museums, and the work, adult, online, non-traditional and home learning worlds. Our theme for this conference is "What Are We Learning About Learning?" As the Internet shifts the boundaries of when, where, and how we learn, we believe our learning worlds will increasingly overlap.

All sessions are recorded and the recordings are generally available within an hour of a session's completion. Keynote recordings will be uploaded to the Learning Revolution YouTube channel. Mobile users will be able to connect to sessions by going to on your mobile device. Live chat and help during the conference will be at Tweets with session reminders and links can be tracked at @learnrevproject. Volunteer moderators--we need you. Please sign up here! Wish you'd signed up to present a session? We're still taking submissions for our May 1 Reinventing the Classroom conference here!
