Keynote today at Ascilite

I am doing a keynote today at the Ascilite conference in New Zealand. In the talk I want to consider some of the challenges and opportunities new technologies bring to an educational context. I use the patterns of user behaviour we are seeing emerging in Cloudworks as a case study. A cloud with the presentation slides and a full paper is available here.

I have also set up a provocative cloud listing some grand challenges that I think we face in educational technology.

The Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education, also known as ascilite, is an association for academics, staff developers and trainers involved in tertiary computer-based education and training. Ascilite acts as a forum for discussing issues on the use of technology in education, travel deal, and promotes research and evaluation. Ascilite holds an annual conference and runs a community mentoring program.

The association has some 590 members located in 24 countries and has been in existence since the early 1980s.

The elected executive consists of ten committee members from Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong and is supported by a Secretariat.

thanks Matt for postng this, I have been to a number of ASCILITE conferences now over the years and always find them really excellent - good content, nice people, great locations - what more could we ask for? Also am impressed by the range of other services that ASCILITE provides for its community - such as the award recognition schemes and the mentoring scheme (excelent idea) - very important.
