There were two major events in London last week between 9 and 15 January 2011 concerning learning technology: Learning Without Frontiers Festival(LWF) and the enormous BETT Fair at Olympia.

Learning Without Frontiers

This was a successor to the annual Handheld Learning conferences organised by Graham Brown-Martin since 2005  http://www.learningwithoutfrontiers.com/our-past/ , and its title this year  was “Disruption, innovation and learning”  with a heady mix of impressive speakers, nearly all of them interesting, and some genuinely disruptive thinkers. Graham Brown-Martin started the conference in describing the “King Canute” attitude towards mobile technologies that are still prevalent in education and the need for disruptive thinking.
