Welcome to the 2020 Learning Revolution online conference.
This is an historic and unique event. Sessions will be held daily over the course of two months, all free to attend live.
A calendar will list all sessions as they are scheduled on a rolling basis, and a daily email will give the final schedule for each day. The sessions will also be recorded. Access to the archive of recordings will be available for $99.
The call for proposals opens on March 23rd. Presentation acceptances will be made on a rolling basis almost immediately, and presenters will be given the opportunity to choose a presentation day / time that is convenient to their own schedule.
The conference is being hosted by Steve Hargadon'sLearning Revolution Project. He has held over 100 online and physical learning events during the past 10 year, and has a combined audience membership of 160,000 educators, administrators, librarians, students, and parents.
The technologies of the Internet and the Web are reshaping when, where, and from whom we learn--and even how we think about learning. As the boundaries of these learning worlds increasingly overlap, we believe these conversations will be critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place.
Thank you for joining us.

It's a fun little tool. I can see it being very popular with younger students (although you have to be at least thirteen to register). I did at one point get it to work in the discussion forum, but it seriously messed up the formatting of the page so as you saw, I removed it. I added it to my new blog, nexus.ontarioblogs.com.
