What they said:

Steve was a storyteller who knew how to engage his audience while driving home his key messages. – Susie Vesper, New Zealand, 2o1o.

Relevant, humorous and thought provoking in equal measures, (Steve) had some great things to say and put a different slant on many things that are at the forefront of the technology in education debate.  I felt like I was mentioning significant points from the presentation via Twitter every few minutes, there was so much worth repeating and sharing.Bev Evans, England, 2o11.

Wheeler is a well established visionary in how technology is not only influencing the world of education, but how we think. – Simon Lewis, Ireland, 2012.

Steve was a …. charismatic speaker with a great presentation style at this year’s THE conference in Doha. His talk, entitled “Learning Futures: Emerging Technologies, Pedagogies and Contexts” was both funny and informative. The audience clearly connected with him through his creative use of visuals and techniques for getting us to think critically... – Jenn Wicks, Qatar, 2013.
