This is only the second day of the conference but there is already a sense of community among the participants. It is so nice to go down to the restaurant for breakfast I meeting people to discuss the sessions that we have been to and sessions that are still to come then to get together to travel to the Conference Centre.
You know who is going to the conference because of the name tags we are all wearing. So this morning when we tried to find a cab to get to SECC, we saw two more conference participants who were also going to the centre. As there was only one taxi, we shared it and had a great chat on the way. Even on the way to the centre you can network. Isn't it great?
And now we are all at the plenary session listening to Diana Laurillard giving a talk about using technology in teaching.
