30th March saw TEL contribute to a special event at the London Knowledge Lab (LKL) in collaboration with the Open University and University of Nottingham. The event aimed to forge links between those who are designing, building and using technology for learning in various sectors.
The MiGen, Learning Designer and Echoes projects were among 17 demos packed into LKL from 11:00-1:00. The event, attended by 70 academics, industry and policymaker colleagues represents a proactive attempt by academia to engage with potential stakeholders and open clearer channels of communication between academia, industry and policy.
The Department for Education’s Vanessa Pittard and TEL Director Professor Richard Noss spoke to the attendees as did the event’s organiser Professor Rose Luckin. The remainder of the time was allocating to touring the demos.
The event is one of a series which will be held over the rest of 2012 in collaboration with the Open University and University of Nottingham and supported by the Association for Learning Technology (ALT) and TEL.
