The dialogue is the key.
Anything you need for the year will be at this conference - you just need to find out who that person is. The technologies are critical to be able to find those people.

The big 4 learning support frameworks:

Pedagogy is the hardest and therefore the weakness.

How is this going to look in 2012/2015 - This is a digital format.

Digital Curriculum
Digital Pedagogy
Digital Assessment & Reporting
Digital Learning Spaces

- How are we and what are we assessing with these collaborations that are happening?

Digital pedagogy
20th C - behaviourist/constructivist/cognitivist?
21st C - constructivist/meta-constructivist/connectivism?

Top thinkers working in a meta way - watching themselves in an outside manner and regulating and thinking about what is going on. Self-talk: what is going on here - what am i doing - what can i do etc

The Sky Is Blue - speaking in their head and saying this. Teaching this to students - being aware of self.

Connectivism is the most intriguing learning theory.

All in this together - digital environments are going to help this.

If you employ digital learning processes, they must advance student learning. Otherwise, why bother?

How does this advance the educational rigour?

It's all about the learning - the learning is first then other things are built in.
Sometimes you don't know that the tool will support the learning though.
