Learning Technologies 2014: Backchannel details

Ahead of this week’s Learning Technologies event, I wanted to supply some more details on how to make the most of the backchannel from near or far. Based on feedback from last year, I have set up the backchannel to run along the same lines in an effort to make it as easy as possible to tune into the sessions or speakers you want.


Gerd Leonhard at Learning Technologies 2013Each conference session has an individual hashtag that will be used in addition to the main #LT14UK hashtag. So if you’re following using TweetChat or a similar application, you can search on the specific sessions to keep your focus on a particular topic. Below is a list of these hashtags and which of our tweeters is covering those sessions. Hopefully you can start following them in advance and really hone in on any areas of interest during the event. Note, the keynotes and opening and closing addresses won’t have individual hashtags. For the full conference programme, click here.
