I am the Social Learning Consultant for Elluminate/Blackboard Collaborate and the founder of the Web 2.0 Labs.
I created the Classroom 2.0 social network, am host of the Future of Education interview series, and co-chair the annual Global Education and Library 2.0 worldwide conferences. I pioneered the use of social networking in education, particularly for professional development. I blog, speak, and consult on educational technology, I run the Open Source Pavilion and speaker series for the ISTE, CUE, and other edtech shows, and I am the organizer of the annual EduBloggerCon, OpenSourceCon, and the “unplugged” and “bloggers’ cafe” areas at both ISTE and CUE.
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, Microsoft, KnowledgeWorks Foundation, CoSN, MERLOT, the U.S. State Department, and others on educational technology and specifically on social networking.
My wife and I have four children.
Keynote: Teacher 2.0
Significant changes are taking place in our societies and cultures, largely driven by the participative and collaborative technologies of the Web. These technologies are dramatically (and quickly) changing expectations of the role of schools in teaching and learning, and creating important new roles for individual educators in reshaping our educational institutions.
