What is Learning 2.0: A Colorado Conversation?

Subscribe to the Learning 2.0 portal blog and podcast!
Learning 2.0: A Colorado Conversation, is a one day conference/meetup for teachers, administrators, students, school board members, parents and anyone who is interested in education. It will be held on Saturday, February 21st, 2009, from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm (MST, GMT -7) at Heritage High School in Littleton, Colorado, USA (different location than last year - here's a map ). We assume most folks will be from Colorado, but everyone is welcome to attend, and we are working on some ideas for virtual participation.

Education is conversation. Conversation creates change.

The future of education does not exist in the isolated world of theory and abstract conference sessions. Instead, it exists in conversations. It exists in creating a robust learning network that is ever-expanding and just-in-time. Learning 2.0 is not the beginning of this conversation. It is merely a stopping point, a time to talk about the visible difference that we all seek. We read. We reflect. We write. We share. We learn. Come join us for a day of conversation about learning and technology.

Conference Details:


Closed...We're at capacity! While that's a good thing, we know that some of you still want to come. Look for a wait list or consider attending virtually. Details forthcoming. Thanks for the tremendous interest!

Attendance Page

NOTE: This is a self-add list - if you registered and don't see yourself, it's because you need to add yourself. We thought this would be a handy way for folks to share their contact information and links. If you don't want to do that, though - it's fine. This is not the registration page!

Free, baby. And lunch is included, thanks to the generous support of Littleton Public Schools and St. Vrain Valley Public Schools.


BYOL (that would be B ring Y our O wn L aptop) - we'll have wireless access to the Internet (filtered) - we may test our capacity to handle density of machines, but hopefully things will go swimmingly. If not, we have wired machines in various places you can access.

Invite Others

We strongly encourage you to invite other folks from your school, district, neighborhood, or learning network to attend as well. It would be great if everyone could bring at least one person with them that is perhaps new to this conversation. Bring a trusted student or two, too.

Questions for Students

We're having a student panel discussion during lunch. Here's your chance to submit some questions for them to consider.

Call for Conversations
