15th Conference of the Association for Learning Technology

Later this week, several hundred people from the UK and around the world are getting together to talk, listen and have fun whilst learning about learning technology and the Digital Divide at the ALT-C conference.

The keynote speakers are David Cavallo, Chief Learning Architect for One Laptop per Child, and Head of the Future of Learning Research Group at MIT Media Lab; Dr Itiel Dror, Senior Lecturer in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Southampton; and Hans Rosling, Professor of International Health, Karolinska Institute, Sweden, and Director of the Gapminder Foundation.

Click here if you are interested in seeing the keynotes in real time.

Frances Bell, along with Helen Keegan, Josie Fraser and Cristina da Costa is running a workshop called Learning about the Digital Divide, based a successful one we ran last year.

I hope that many BDPA Foundation readers will check out this conference and learn more about ALT even if you cannot be there in person.
