“People need to have the power to solve their own problems” - Kosta Grammatis
Kosta Grammatis believes if you provide a person with a mobile device and access to the internet their learning space can be anywhere. Support a person’s curiosity to question, reason and create within whatever space they are in and their learning can become anything. Learners of the 21st century need these things: a space, a device, a connection, a facilitator, a motive. Yet over 5 billion people on this planet don't have internet access.
Educational Technology and Related Education Conferences
for January to June 2013, Updated
Prepared by Clayton R. Wright, crwr77 at gmail.com, November 13, 2012
The 28th edition of the conference list covers selected events that primarily focus on the use of technology in educational settings and on teaching, learning, and educational administration. Only listings until June 2013 are complete as dates, locations, or Internet addresses (URLs) were not available for a number of events held from June onward. A significant challenge during the assembly of this list is incomplete or conflicting information on websites and the lack of a link between conference websites from one year to the next. (Note, the December 2012 listings have been updated from the previous list.)
Presentation Description: This keynote session by Karen Fasimpaur for the “Visioning New Curriculum” strand talks about the unique opportunities presented by Common Core, digital tools, openness, and innovation. The time for one-size-fits-all, top-down curriculum is over. This session gives examples of curriculum that is personalized, real world, iterative, and collaborative. It is time for a new era in curriculum — one that is digital, open, innovative, and built by and for our community. This video includes reflection questions which can be explored collaboratively athttps://p2pu.org/en/groups/k12-online-2012/ The ideas in this video were developed collaboratively with a group of many people much smarter than me. Thanks to everyone who played along. This process was a testament to the power of collaboration and of creation as way to reflect and learn.
