"We are pleased to announce the Learning Revolution Conference, online and free, April 21 - 25, 2014. Our goal is to bring together people who are thinking about learning from our important learning places: the school, library, museum, work, adult, online, non-traditional, and home learning worlds.
"We want to explore and bridge the conversations about learning that are common to these worlds, including: learning theory, learning practice, learning science, learning space design, and technology for learning. The Internet is shifting the boundaries of these worlds and we believe that they will increasingly overlap and integrate. We also believe that conversations across these boundaries are critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place.
"The first three days of the event will have evening (US Time) keynote speakers. The final two days of the conference will include as well a full set of traditional conference sessions during the day.
"The conference will be held in multiple languages and time zones. Everyone is invited to participate in this FREE event designed to foster conversations about learning from often-separate fields: school, library, museum, work, adult, online, non-traditional, and home education.
"To be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please join the Learning Revolution network. You do not need to join this network to attend, but doing so will also allow you to correspond with the presenters and other members, and to comment on sessions and discussions."
