Registration for the 2010 Mozilla Drumbeat Festival is now open! Join teachers, learners and technologists from around the world November 3 – 5 in Barcelona to teach, hack, shape and invent the future of education and the web.

Not your typical conference

Imagine a teeming festival filled with different tents, each with its own unique flavor and focus as you move from tent to tent making up your own experience. The Drumbeat Festival will work just like this — with multiple spaces to teach, make and learn in a variety of different studios, labs, playgrounds and classrooms.

From a local learning incubator, badge lab and open source classroom to hackerspace playground, wikipedia lounge and video and learning gallery, there’ll be multiple spaces to dive deep and get your hands dirty.

The main stage will include keynotes from Joi Ito, Brenda Gourley, Bre Pettis, Mitchell Baker and others. Think Makerfaire + Hackfest + TEDtalks + Lollapalooza for open web education!
