The Social Learning Camp

The Serious Games Zone

The Social Learning Camp is a unique experience designed to not only get you up to speed on the latest social media (Web 2.0) technologies but also help you think about concrete ways that you can apply them to your learning challenges and develop the case studies and best practices to get them adopted back home! You'll go deep on available tools, look at appropriate strategies for adoption and implementation, discuss emerging case studies and look at available resources to support their relevant and constructive use.

The Social Learning Camp runs throughout the conference. You'll be able to select from a range of activities including formal sessions, informal discussions or tool demonstrations all facilitated by a wide variety of social learning experts and community members to help you get you signed on, your feet wet, and your questions answered.

We need your input on challenges you face, questions you have, and tools you'd like to see covered...

We are giving you the chance to actively participate in developing the activities and focal points for this great event. Head over to this page and fill out post-its notes with your ideas and leave them on our shared board. We really want your input to help make this an incredibly valuable and targeted event for you!
