This podcast is a recording of the final debriefing among organizers and cohort facilitators at the conclusion of the Learning 2.010 Conference at Concordia International School in Shanghai, China, on September 17, 2010. In 2010 more than ever, organizers of the conference worked hard to (in the words of Chris Betcher during our debrief) upset and turn around the traditional model of stand and deliver, sit-and-get professional development for educators. At the conference, participants self-selected a cohort group focused on specific themes. Each cohort was led by a team of two co-facilitators. In this debriefing, cohort facilitators shared what worked well, what didn’t, what they/we would have changed and done differently, and our main “takeaways” from this fantastic learning conference. Cohort facilitators for the 2.010 conference included Alec Couros, Amanda Decardy, Ann Krembs, Carol Jordan, Chris Betcher, Darren Kuropatwa, David Elliott, David Larson, Jeff Utecht, Julie Lindsay, Jon Zurfluh, Kim Cofino, Madeleine Brookes, Melinda Alford, Michael Boll, Michael Lambert, Laurie Heikkila, Liz Davis, Steve Hargadon, Tim Lauer, and Wes Fryer. Cohort themes were Changing Role of our Libraries and School, Digital and Visual Literacy, Education in 2020, First Steps in Changing the Classroom, Fostering a Culture of Learning and Creativity, Leading the Pack – Leadership for Change, Online Education, Relationship Between Teachers and Students, Social Media Tools in Schools, and The Future of Learning.
