Ok, my first post to this blog was about ALT-C 2006, and now here’s only the fourth post and I’ve just returned from ALT-C 2008. Do I apologise? No I don’t! It’s not like I haven’t been busy with other things, honest!
I enjoyed keynotes from:
- Dr Hans Rosling, Professor of International Health, Karolinska Institute, Sweden, and Director, Gapminder Foundation

- David Cavallo, Chief Learning Architect for One Laptop Per Child
