Alan Levine, CogDogBlog, Oct 11, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Long post covering a number of keynote, hands-on and eveen virtual sessions from last week’s Digital Media and Learning conference. It's Alan Levine getting excited about educational technology again, and when that happens, it's always a good read. He also talks about his new approach to conferences: "A conference now to me is a huge serendipity engine that plays off of, and can amplify the valuable of connections in the online space. But not on its own. You have to initiate a few things." This includes talking to people in meal line-ups, going to sessions without checking the session titles, and watching the 'ignite' talks for new ideas. He also talks about the idea of leading into in-person talks with online talks involving the same audience. All good stuff.
