See You at Olympia 2, London

I look forward to opening this year's speaking calendar in London, at Learning Technologies 2010, Europe's leading organisational learning and learning technology conference. The topic is Emerging trends in interactivity: what every learning professional must know and why. This session will give the audience an overview of the state-of-the art in interactive technology as well as specific insights into how you can utilize emerging new tools and approaches like rapid interactivity and embeddable social interactions for developing effective learning materials.

Interactivity is no more the exclusive province of bespoke suppliers. Every learning professional - whether a teacher, trainer, course developer, subject matter expert or instructional designer - must think about building interactive experiences for learners. Clearly, technology is advancing rapidly to help make this happen.

In my recent blog post on trends in interactivity, I have outlined the general direction technology is taking to facilitate two-way interactive communication. In the upcoming session, I plan to help build a perspective that will help learning professionals make sense of new trends in the months to come, and help them stay on top of them, as they steer their learning ecosystem into the future. A synopsis of the talk is available online.

I am looking forward to meeting several users of Harbinger Knowledge Products as well as partners and industry peers at the Olympia 2 London venue. It's a relief to know that there is a wired 1Mb internet connection in each seminar theatre.
