Liveblog #LT15UK: The value of MOOCs

Liveblog #LT15UK: Why wearable technology will change learning forever

David Kelly, interesting.. sitting in the first row.. I was googling around on his website when I read this: “While the northeast snowstorm in the US has prevented me from attending in-person in London, we have made arrangements to have me share the session virtually.”. See how this will go!! Great blog by the way, with all kinds of resources accompanying his presentation. To be found here. David starts with a comparison.. going on vacation a couple of years ago: you made a plan, searched on a map, took mysterious pictures and wrote letters to Grandma. Now we use...
