You can twitter comments or leave comments in the discussions on the virtual conference:
You don't have to register to listen in on the conference but you will be able to engage in post keynote discussions if you do so please take a few minutes to create your profile from the link above (including a picture or image as your avatar) so that others get to know a bit about you. Please join any or as many of the Groups as you are interested in or start your own group or disucussion. It might be an idea to upload your poster or paper as a file so that others can read it (There is a quick guide to using this site). The hot-seat debates on the bottom right relate to key-notes and one invited symposium. Please continue the debate.
The EARLI 2011 Virtual Conference space is now open.

On Monday the 2nd the first two Earli online Hot Seats Dialogues started. For a week we had the opportunity to meet online with our distinguished speakers and explore with them ideas and questions based around their keynote address in Exeter in August.
In the first group we had Mary James & Andrew Pollard hosting a dialogue on “Principles for effective pedagogy”. In the second group we had Shaaron Ainsworth talking about “Visual & Multimodal Learning”. You can read the discussions online and add your own comments and thoughts. So login and join the Hot Seat Dialogues!
In keeping with the theme of the conference, ‘Education for a Global Networked Society’, this Virtual space is open to all so please pass on this link to any friends and colleagues who might benefit from the community of learning that EARLI provides but will not be at Exeter in the flesh.
This is now an opportunity for those who are going to be at Exeter in August to make contact with each other, arrange meetings, prepare events and ask questions.
The style of the space is influenced by Facebook. This means you have to actively join groups to be a member of them and it is easy to set up new groups and start new discussion topics. If you have any problems contact Mike Jeffries of the Exeter Local Organising committee who created this space and will help make it work: M.J.Jeffries@exeter.ac.uk
In May we were running a number of 'Hot-Seat' events where leading researchers, mostly SIG-invited Keynote speakers, lead a discussion. These are currently clearly labelled on the right of the opening screen. Please join the groups you are interested in. If you do not see your SIG group represented or want to start a new topic why not organise your own Hot-Seat?
These discussion spaces, and others that you create, will continue and allow for preparation of ideas before sessions as well as discussion and reflection after sessions at the conference in the flesh. We hope that this virtual space will thereby widen and deepen the learning experience of the Exeter EARLI2011 conference, but this of course, like almost everything else in life, all depends on you and your engagement and activity - so please register, join groups and ask questions.
TWITTER: You can follow EARLI 2011 on Twitter @earli2011. Keep an eye on what’s happening before and during the Conference.
We look forward to meeting you online
