The Learning 2.0 conference has now finished, but what a great conference it was with some great online sessions and some fantastic keynote addresses. One of my favourite sessions was a keynote by Lucy Gray - Social Media Tools for Personalized Professional Development.

How are your learning spaces changing? What impact is it having on your classroom?
Congratulations to Steve Hargadon on another amazing conference which helps connect us. Thanks to the sponsors of the conference, to the presenters and the moderators.
