Twitter folks were namely LearnNuggets aka Kevin Thorn who told me of some interesting game projects he's worked on (he even had a chance to do a 2 week, heads down game development project leaving the conference room only for coffee--now that's awesome. I also met briefly pamelacdevine (Pam Devine) who blogs at Business Learning Blog and spoke for a while with tomhood (Tom Hood) who is helping CPA's enter into the world of Second Life...check out CPA Island.
The panel on which I served did a fun little exercise, we were given topics and got to decide if they were fact or fad. We discussed current topics like augmented reality (Click here to see BMW's use of virtual googles--you'll need to click on the video in the right hand corner).
We discussed virtual worlds--which I said was fact!
We discussed mobile learning--which I said was a fad because I don't think talking an entire course and squeezing it down to the iPhone for viewing is a good idea. Instead, I think the focus should be mobile performance support. Gathering information you need to do your job but not learning in course format.
We discussed some other great and "dangerous" topics as well. A little later the video of the panel discussion will be posted and you can check it out yourself.
Good fun working with Susan Smith Nash who blogs at E-Learning Queen and Mark Bower who blogs at Learning Leaders Forum. It was so much fun we make take the "show on the road!"
Great meeting everyone!!
