iMoot 2012 is in Full Swing!

#imoot 2012 is in full swing over the Memorial Day Weekend. 168 hours of nonstop presentations from around the world on Moodle's use in business, schools, distance learning, blended learning, flipped classrooms and more. Just heard about gamification - a mindset about setting up online learning that avoids the read and click syndrome, replacing it with activities that lead to a certificate or prize.
The biggest challenge is becoming graceful with time zones and converting to Alaska time during Daylight Savings. Normally, we are -9 GMT but at this time of year, -8 GMT. The hosts have set the schedule so that, if you enter your personal time zone in your iMoot profile, you see a schedule set in YOUR time zone. With so many hours of sun in Alaska at this time of year, it is easier to stay up and participate - but sleep DOES help the mind to work more efficiently!
