Day 16 of the #JuneEdTechChallenge and we’ve been asked about an inspiring keynote of the past.
For me there have been two, both from previous ALTC events – Audrey Watter and Ian Livingstone
Firstly, Audrey Watters at the 2014 ALTC in Warwick. I believe this was my first ALTC in person, and when I learned the real background to what is a luddite.
Secondly, from ALTC again, back In Warwick again, but this time in 2016. The amazing Ian Livingstone, the author of the fighting fantasy books I loved in my youth, spoke about coding and collaboration.
Don’t get me wrong, there have been many great keynotes and event presentations, including:
- Simon Finch – PELeCON 2012: Something better change
- Helen Keegan – PELeCON 2012: Learning as a game
- Ellen MacArthur – Learning Without Frontiers 2012: Learning & the circular economy
- Stephen Heppell – Learning Without Frontiers 2012: Child led learning
- James Clay – FOTiE 2014: “You underestimate the power of the dark side”
- Sue Beckingham – ALTC 2020: Revisiting the affordances and consequences of digital interconnectedness and socially mediated publicness
- This is Day 16 of the 30-day JuneEdTechChallenge. Follow the challenge on my JuneEdTechChallenge blog tag and on Twitter using the #JuneEdTechChallenge hashtag. And write your own entries too. The list of challenges is as follows:
