Digital Media and Learning Conference 2012 teaser post

OK, I’m writing this quickly during a break at the 2012 Digital Media and Learning Conference in San Francisco.

There is A LOT to write about here (one only has to look to Twitter to see), but let’s just say that:

– “Play” is a big buzzword here (thanks in no small part to John Seely Brown‘s keynote talk on the important values of the “21st century¬†entrepreneur”)

– “Tinkering” is highly encouraged

– Pragmatism a la John Dewey is highly favored.

Badges are a MAJOR hot topic and possible means of revitalizing higher education assessment and skills-based recognition.

I will provide some more thorough reflections when I have:

a. Recovered from awakening at 5:00 A.M. to make it to the city.

b. Have had time to process my notes and the slew of Tweets/Google Doc notes I’ve been reading.

… and this is just the start to three days of discussion!

  1. Wow! I didn’t realize that John Seely Brown was the keynote! Now I wish I had gone. I have been following his work for years, citing it in pretty much everything that I write. I look forward to reading your follow-up post!
