Conference Wrap-up

September 6th, 2007 · No Comments

Announcing ALT-C 2008. Rebecca and I feel that there is definitely a space for a Second Life presence at ALT-C given the interest we’ve encountered. The general themes look interesting and varied, for example, control v freedom, narrowing v catching up, open v proprietary (OpenLearn link here?), digital divides. Pointed out that divides can be positive. Maybe we should think about creating some divides, some tensions etc.

Keynotes include Hans Rosling, David Cavallo and Itiel Dror.

Venue: Leeds. Hosted in the University of Leeds – museums, shopping and culture cited as the advantages. Apparently one of the best clubing cities – as if delegates would have the energy to go clubbing 🙂

9-11 September 2008
