Physical, Face-to-Face, In Person Book Tour

Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning is taking me all over the world...literally. Here are some physical, face-to-face book tour stops (old fashion, I know, I know).

I'm speaking in Paris, France next week at the Kaplan-EduNeering European Knowledge Summit--invitation only (sorry). I'll be discussing learning trends like, Games, the use of wikis and blogs for Personal Learning Environments, Increased Focus on Assessments, Scenario-based Learning and other exciting happenings in the world of learning as they relate to Gadgets, Games and Gizmos.

Then, it is off to Training Tech Solutions Conference and Exposition on October 15-17 in Salt Lake City, Utah. I literally get off the plane from France and board the plane for Salt Lake. While at the conference, I am speaking 3 times and getting together with some people I've only met through blogging...it will be a great time. Thanks to Brent for setting up the drinkfest. The three events are:

-Games, Gadgets, and Gizmos: Transferring Knowledge from Boomers to Gamers Monday, Oct 15 03:15 PM -04:15 PM

-Utilizing Wikis, Blogs and Social Networking Tools for Corporate Training and Communication Tuesday, Oct 16 01:30 PM - 03:00 PM a 90 minute hands on session.

-Learning in 3D: What the 3D Web Means to Online Learning Wednesday, Oct 17 08:15 AM - 11:15 AM

-There is an "official" book signing in Utah at some point at the conference but I can't find the email with the date...I'll post it when I figure it out:)

Then I head home and speak in Philadelphia area on October 26th at a large financial services firm. This too is a private engagement.

Then, I speak publically as a Keynote at the PA/DE/NJ Distance Learning Association's 5th Annual Conference & Expo at Penn State Great Valley campus. This event takes place on Wednesday November 7, 2007.

Then down to Cary, North Carolina on December 11th and 12th for the Advanced Learning Technologies Summit.

Then a couple of events in Feb and one in June already schedule.

So, if you can make any of those venues, I'd love to have you stop by and say hello. And yes, I'll be glad to sign a book or two...which is one downside of the virtual book tour...I can't sign any books.

Karl--I don't think this is old fashioned at all--it is simply a "blended" book tour. Thanks for stopping by to comment at Mission to Learn. Apropos of my posting and your comment I thought I should drop by to note that I have finally placed my order for your book. I say "finally," but actually your book tour (the virtual one) inspired me to do this sooner than I would have otherwise. Not at all a comment on the quality of the book--just a comment on the stack that is already sitting on my desk! Best wishes for the real book tour. Jeff

Jeff, I guess you are right, a blended tour! Thanks for ordering the book and I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing it! Good luck working through the stack...I know the feeling.
