Closing Keynote edJEWcon5773.1: Steve Hargadon
We are pleased to announce Steve Hargadon, as our closing keynote speaking for edJEWcon 5773.1
I am the director of the Web 2.0 Labs, host of the Future of Education interview series, chair of the Social Learning Summit, and co-chair the annual Global Education and Library 2.0 worldwide conferences.
I pioneered the use of social networking in education by creating the Classroom 2.0 social network in 2007, and supported and encouraged the development of thousands of other education networks, particularly for professional development. I blog, speak, and consult on educational technology, and I run several virtual and physical events to build community and connections in education, with over 100,000 participants annually.
I am also the Emerging Technologies Chair for ISTE, the author of “Educational Networking: The Important Role Web 2.0 Will Play in Education,” the recipient of the 2010 Technology in Learning Leadership Award (CUE), and a blogger at www.SteveHargadon.com. I have consulted for PBS, Intel, Ning, Blackboard, Microsoft, KnowledgeWorks Foundation, CoSN, MERLOT, the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Department of Education, and others on educational technology and specifically on social networking. You can find a full list of my projects at the Web 2.0 Labs.
