Library 2.011

library20 Library 2.011 Even before I process and share all I learned at AASL, I must share about this week’s Library 2.011.

Scheduled for November 2nd through the 4th (depending on where you are), the line-up for this free, international event, sponsored by San Jose University, is going to be outstanding. Register here

Steve Hargadon, conference organizer and edtech/library world hero, shares:

With over 5,000 registered participants, from 151 different countries, this is an incredibly exciting event.  I’m particularly fascinated by the ways in which virtual conferences have the potential to bring librarians, educators, and students together to learn from each other, and see this as part of the enormous power of social media and the Web.  There are many ways in which a virtual conference can differ from a physical one, but primarily it is the ability to be *inclusive*–inclusive of those who can attend and those who can present.

Here’s a peek of what’s ahead, Eastern time:

    What an exciting new forum and frontier for discussion and sharing. Our WLMA LIT session had participants from AU to NY and provided another example of why I’m confident that LIT TLs are firmly part of the future of education.
