Thanks to the efforts of Jeff Pulver and Chris Lehmann, the first-ever #140edu Conference will take place in New York City on August 2 and 3. There is a fantastic slate of speakers lined up including: Connected Principal’s own Eric Sheninger, #edchat founders Shell Terrell, Tom Whitby, and Steve Anderson, and many other amazing educators.
The statement from the #140edu site sums up the goal of this event clearly:
“The changes in the way we live our lives must create change in the way we teach and learn. The real-time web should create profound changes in the way we think about what, how and why students and teachers can do, create and communicate. The very nature of what we consider “school” should be radically different given the powerful reach of the communicate tools our students have at their disposal. #140edu is dedicated to exploring and expanding that change.”
Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the conversation about how we can change education for all students!
