Search Find Learn

Michelle Gallen's e-learning blog.

Why Search Find Learn?

Because I feel that Search, Find, Learn describes how we learn in the 21st century - we Search for what we need to know, we Find it, and we Learn it. This blog explores how technology is helping us do that.

Contributors wanted

Humans have been on a learning journey since the dawn of time. And it's never been so exciting. If you're using technology in an effective, experimental or innovative way, I'd love to hear from you. I can blog about your project/website/idea, or you can contribute a guest post. Send me an email describing what you're up to.

Handheld Learning Conference 2009

I've booked my ticket for the Handheld Learning Conference 2009 - hopefully my payment went through in time to qualify me for a lovely free iPod touch! I'm really looking forward to getting to listen to some top-notch speakers like

* Ray Kurzweil, Inventor and Futurist
* Malcolm McLaren, Artist
* James Paul Gee, Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies at Arizona State University
* David Braben, Founder & Chairman, Frontier
* Professor Elizabeth Hayes, Arizona State University
* John Davitt, International Learning Advocate, NewTools.org
* Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, CEO and Co-Founder of Tinker.it
* Tim Brighouse, Former Commissioner for London Schools
* Donald Clark, e-Learning Expert
* David Cavallo, Chief Learning Architect, MIT OLPC
* Tim Rylands, Teacher & Innovator

And I believe the very interesting Major Roy Evans who's doing fantastic mobile e-learning for the British army will be popping along too.

    Any sign of your touch or the free software bundle?

    No - but I can't remember the terms and conditions - whether we got them in advance or at the conference.
