Recently I have set about documenting my learning over the last couple of years with the purpose of trying to preserve a record of how my learning occurred, together with learning artifacts from the process. The event I describe in this post was the first training event I organized for other teachers and was inspired by my experience at EdTechConf 2011. Below is the original email invite together with the original logo above.
