eLearning 2.0 is a lively international conference exploring Technology-Enhanced Learning and social media technologies including Blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Wikis, MOOCs and YouTube. The main theme of this year’s conference is “flipping the classroom” and social media for teaching. Flipping the classroom involves delivering digital material outside the classroom and then using class sessions to make sense of the material. The conference will consider evolving pedagogical approaches and raise the profile of research in technology-enhanced learning; spread good practice in the use of Web 2.0 technologies for learning; and facilitate collaboration between practitioners, researchers, and policy makers.
