Hi, Najwa. This looks really interesting. Can I ask you to be more specific about social media and Web 2.0 in your title or description? Once you've done so, you'll need to let me know so I can re-evaluate it.
If you are not necessarily going to go that direction, I will be hosting a "Learning 2.0" conference later this year.
The area I was planning to share during the presentation is the involvement of my school with the iEarn Learning circles and how we, ten schools across the world, collaborated to work on different projects one of which each school has sponsored.
How does that sounds Steve?
I love iEARN, but I don't know how the Learning Circles work--do they use social media or Web 2.0? If yes, then that would be fun to spell out. If not, then this sounds like it would be a great presentation for the 2012 Global Education Conference!
