Its in the Title "Into something rich and strange" - making sense of the sea-change ALTC 2010

The 17th International conference of the Association for Learning Technology istaking place in Nottingham on 7 - 9 September 2010 . The closing date for going is looming so go on book on it.

Why the title is intriguing enough but some of the keynotes swing it for me

Donald (There is no plan B) Clark 
donald ex Ceo of Epic board member of UFI and digital agitator (sorry Donald)
Sugate Mita of Newcastle Uni famous for the whole in the wall computer programme and loads of other stuff
Sudhir Giri Head of Google Learning labs ex Nasa

The invited speakers are also great including my personal favourite David (Digital Visitors V Digital Residents) White of Oxford Uni and the upfront and honest Frank McLoughin Principal of City of Islington College
