40:37 minutes (18.6 MB)

Have a listen as we discuss Conferences and what makes them 2.0. What makes a face-to-face conference 2.0? Is it the conversations, how they are organized (what are the topics, and how decided), lecture vs. hands on.

Listen as we give our experiences with recent conferences and our expectations as teachers using Web 2.0 tools. We gave examples and how the bar is moving up with Web 2.0 tools like wikis, Skype, twitter and Ustream and the like. We also spoke about the unconference format as seen at educon at NECC and recently at SLA.

What can the presenter do to make it more 2.0?
Have a wiki for the presentation. Tags set up. Allow for and encourage backchannel conversation. Reach out to virtual attendees and others out on the web live with tools like Skype and Ustream.

What can the participants do to make it 2.0?
Adding notes to wiki presenter page. Live Blogging.
Blog and use session tag. Record and post as podcasts like David Warlick, Bob Sprankle and Wes Fryer.
