Yes it’s that time of year again and the build up to Learning Technologies 2016 has begun.

So after two of the busiest days in my calendar year at the annual Learning Technologies conference and event, I wanted to just do an initial round-up of what I saw and heard. I'll try and delve a little deeper in subsequent posts but need time to digest it a bit more first.
