PELeCON 2013 … Are you ready? #pelc13

Are you thinking ahead to conferences next year, which ones you’ll attend and which ones you’ll submit to? Yeah, me too, which is why this ‘teaser’ video from the Plymouth Enhanced Learning Conference (PELeCON, April 10-12, 2013) couldn’t have come at a better time:

The topic/theme for PELeCON next year is “Digital Learnscapes: Meeting Future Challenges”:

“We live in a period of change and uncertainty. Many are bewildered by these changes and find it difficult to keep up, particularly in the education and training sectors. The ability to anticipate and prepare for change is the mark of innovative educators, as is the skill of harnessing new and emerging tools to promote good learning.

“At Pelecon 13 we want to provide learning professionals with opportunities to explore, discover and discuss new approaches, new technologies and new ideas to enhance, enrich and extend their own professional practice. There will be particular emphasis this year on simulations and games, personal learning tools, new pedagogies and practices, learner and teacher voice, and digital literacies.”

Are you going?
