2010 Nevada Interactive Media Summit


I’ll be presenting at the 2010 Nevada Interactive Media Summit on March 6, 2010, at the University of Nevada, Reno’s Joe Crowley Student Union.

I’m looking forward to showcasing what my students have been up to, and hoping to make the case for a new pedagogy with a different audience than I usually speak to. My presentation is titled:

“21st Century Classrooms – Engaging, Networking, Publishing, Collaborating To Build Understanding”

The session description reads:

Our schools and classrooms are rooted in a model of education developed over a hundred years ago. Experience what happens when even our most “at risk” students are provided 21st century learning tools and a changed pedagogy that stresses connecting, networking, questioning and active learning versus the, “sit quietly and learn to be taught” form of school. See how students build schema and knowledge by connecting globally to experience challenging and engaging learning opportunities.

It would be great to see other educators there, and the presentations being offered look great!
