The read/write web certainly hit ALT-C this year. If I had the time to make a cloud tag of the event, learning objects would be in tiny, tiny letters, and web 2.0 would only be beaten in size by the word Blackboard, who stormed into first place on the wave of animosity that their software patents have whipped up. There were some interesting sessions on blogging, podcasting popped up, along with wikis. For me, of course, this has been the year of the Personal Learning Environment, and it’s probably not good practice to say so but I really enjoyed the PLE session the most. It was also cool to finally meet up with Dave Tosh of Elgg/Curverider fame. Also really great to get to work a little with Terry Anderson, although I managed to miss bumping into him for most of the conference.
The low point for me was probably the mushroom risotto along with the giant playstation uninteractive things outside of the Dynamic Earth Center. I was also sad to miss Brian Kelly’s session that clashed with ours.
I’ve put up the PLE photo set over at Flickr – if you took part in the session, please do head over and contribute some comments or information about yourself (“that’s the back of my head!”). And don't forget to re-live those precious moments with Graham Attwell: Live at Edinburgh.
