Manitoba School Library Association (and others), Embracing the Edge Conference, Winnipeg, Manitoba

Personal Notes:»

It appears that this is going to be one of those conferences that is serving a wide range of professionals, specifically librarians and tech folks. Its a wholly appropriate mix and I will, as I so often do, attempt to deliver my message by not talking about what I am promoting. Its simply too easy to say, integrate technology, and far more interesting to say, “Stop integrating technology!”

I am delivering three messages at the Embrace the Edge conference:

  1. Redefine literacy
  2. Re-discover pedagogy
  3. Use contemporary literacy for professional learning

You can find the online handouts at the following links.

  • Rebooting the Basics (keynote) – handouts
  • Cracking the Code of the Digital Information Experience (Keynote Address) – handouts
  • The Art & Technique of Personal Learning Networks – handouts
  • Backchannel transcript is here

By this time, Ive been in Winnipeg for a few days, and I hope that Ive had a chance to find the childhood home of Neil Young. As an aspiring singer song-writer of the early 70s, Young and CSNY were personal heroes.

Im also very happy that some of my Canadian friends will be in attendance, and will also be sharing their vast knowledge and experience. Im speaking of Darren Kurpatwa (@dkurpatwa) and and Glassbeed game master, Clarence Fisher (@glassbeed). Im hoping that I will be able to attend their sessions.
