EduMedia 2008

This week I have been talking at EduMedia Conference in Salzburg. I have been invited to give a keynote and talked about changes in information technology for learning, changed usage patterns when moving from web1.0 to web2.0. One of the interesting things is how freely people give away personal data today while it was one of the main topics in user modelling research how to acquire user information build personal profiles and use that for adaptation trying to avoid the coldstart problem ;-).

I met several very interesting and inspiring people including Jay Cross, Steve Wheeler, Graham Atwell and also participated in a interesting TenCompetence session about self-organized learning with interesting contributions.

Furthermore I met a former colleague Andreas Auwaerter beeing really active in podcasting for education, nice thing!
