April Speaking Engagement

In April, I will be appearing on a panel with a couple of blogging pros to talk about learning with New Media. Below is all the marketing information with links for registering.

Learn & Know 2010

Is Twitter or, even, the iPad a viable learning technology? What's real, what's buzz?

Register today for our 5th annual users conference – "Learn & Know 2010," and you'll see the elearning industry's top bloggers break through the buzz and sift fact from fad when it comes to learning technology. If you've registered for our conference, this is your chance to sign up a colleague for "Learn & Know 2010," which runs from April 20 – 21, 2010, at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Va.

Our Buzz-Breaker panel of elearning pros will give you their best insights about what defines learning technology, and what it's really capable of. Don't miss this one-hour session packed with viewpoints and sage advice that'll make you a learning technology buzz-breaker, too.
