Hamish Curry, the Education and Onsite Learning Manager of the State Library of Victoria has kindly sent the following information:
HI warmly invite you to join me at the groundbreaking Listen2Learners event.
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and the State Library of Victoria, together with the UK’s Professor Stephen Heppell, are staging Listen2Learnersto enable you to meet students who are learning with technology and demonstrate how they are shaping their digital learning world.
Listen2Learners is a chance to understand the types of skills, expertise and enthusiasms which young people have, and to hear about it from the students themselves. Creative primary and secondary students from across Australia will tell their own stories about how they are using technology to overcome barriers, meet personal challenges and access learning in the 21st century.
Professor Heppell, will be on hand to tell you what other systems are achieving by listening to their learners.
The event will be held on Monday 11 October 2010 in Experimedia at the State Library of Victoria.
Please visit any time between 10am and 2.30pm to speak with the students, meet Professor Heppell and network with like minded people from across the education sector and beyond. Light refreshments will be provided.
For a glimpse of what you can expect to discover at the Listen2Learners event, please visit the website and follow the event on Twitter # Listen2Learners.
I know you will value this opportunity to see the kinds of things students are doing with technology, driven by their own passions and interests.
I look forward to catching up with you at Listen2Learners.
Listen2Learners sounds like a brilliant initiative and Stephen Heppell is an inspiring speaker.
