This one is called Innovations in Learning: Technology in (and out of) the Classroom
Here's how they describe it:
Technology has revolutionized our lives. But has it changed education in the 21st century? Join us to hear leaders share their experiences using technology to deliver better individualized learning and outcomes for students. Read our blog series on technology in the classroom.I think you will hear a lot of people advocating for a vision of the future in education that approaches the one I described in a blog post titled "The Future - Education Reform Version".
The speakers will be:
John Danner, CEO of Rocketship Education
Cheryl Vedoe, CEO of Apex Learning
Shantanu Sinha, President of Khan Academy
Moderated by Tom Vander Ark
Thursday, June 9 at 7:00 p.m.
University of Washington
Kane Hall, Room 210
4098 15th Ave NE, Seattle
You can RSVP at the LEV web site.
I'm going to try to make it. I want to hear what they have to say. I will be paying special attention to their idea of the right uses for technology and the right mix of live instruction with a professional teacher and recorded or online instruction without a live teacher.
