The PLE Conference 2012: one week later

I have yet to write a post on the conference itself; there's just too much to process, but in the meantime I wanted to aggregate some of the posts that have been inspired by it. I know I will be checking those in the future, so maybe someone will find it useful as well. For now, these are some of the links (will update as required), and a nice picture of Aveiro ;)
  • José Mota's post on the 2nd day unkeynote and his answers to our questions
  • José Mota's wrap-up on the conference
  • Grainne Conole's post on preparing the unkeynote and a summary of the content and discussion
  • Steve Wheeler's reflection on the 2nd day unkeynote
  • Mark Smithers' reflection on the conference
  • Frances Bell's post
  • Malinka Ivanova's post
  • The Sapo Campus-based site for the conference
  • The official site for PLEConf (note that there are individual pages for most of the sessions, with additional references and resources - thanks to Linda for the reminder!)
  • The ScoopIt! site curated by Gemma (thanks!) that collects blogposts by unkeynote speakers and PLEConf site
  • My own post asking participants for their input and comments on the 4 questions we proposed and used as the starting point for our unkeynote
  • Discussion posted on Cloudworks, with several contributions
  • The YouTube playlist with videos contributed by colleagues/researchers/friends (thanks again to everyone!)
  • Find the conversation on Twitter around the hashtag #PLEConf
  • Pictures on Flickr that were tagged with #PLEConf
  • Linda Castañeda's pictures
More to come, most likely!

  1. Dear Ricardo, would you like to include also the page with the whole materials developed for the session A3 PLEs and Lifelong Learning (videos, slideshows and maps that it is here ? thanks


  2. It is actually a good idea, but I didn't want to include each individual page from this year's conference as the list would have gone on forever. Will add a comment though, just to make sure people know there's more info about the sessions in the PLEConf website. Thanks!
