The Learning 2.0 conference in Shanghai opened last Friday night with an engaging panel discussion among the speakers. This was not only a lot of fun, but also a great way to frame the themes of the conference and introduce everyone to the speakers. Each speaker was asked to respond to a different question relating to the use of web 2.0 tools for learning, and those initial responses were recorded with video and posted to YouTube.

Ken Carroll has posted an audio podcast recording of the entire panel discussion, available for download as an mp3 file. Many thanks to Ken for recording and sharing this! Ken is a co-founder of Chinesepod.com, which offers a variety of podcast options for Chinese language learners.

I think the organizers of the Learning 2.0 conference did many things which modeled “best practices” for education conferences. I shared several of these in my TechLearning blog post today, titled “Learning from the Learning 2.0 Conference.”
