“The Future Of Learning In A Networked World” is a traveling conference sponsored by Otago Polytechnic in New Zealand that started on September 18, 2006, and is continuing. The conference blog and wiki have more details. This is really a superb idea: An ecclectic group of participants “are now travelling as a roadshow to participating institutions to continue open space meetings with local audiences” around New Zealand.

Anyone is invited to attend and participate in person and virtually. Participation options include:

Add your picture and bio to the Participants page.
Read the latest on the The Future of Learning in a Networked World blog.
Listen to audio or watch video from the event – most of which can be found on this wiki, or on the blog
Follow along with our FLNW Community Walk map which uses Google Maps to geo-document the conference.
You can also contribute by tagging your blog posts, photos, audio and video with flnw.
Attendance is open to anyone with an interest in the topic.

How exciting! I think conference events like these which are putting web 2.0 tools like blogs, podcasts and wikis to practical use are some of the best opportunities for teachers to learn about the respective uses of each tool.

    I couldn’t agree more. The best way to learn is by doing. When teachers participate in virtual conferences they have the opportunity to learn by doing. It’ll most certainly benefit their students.
