I'll be spending time with the faculty and staff of the Lancaster-Lebanon IU 13 discussing disruptive technologies in teaching and learning. This half day will focus primarily on discussing strategies related to the appropriate integration of disruptive technologies for teaching. I will draw upon my experiences from the course I co-teach with Scott McDonald and from examples of work I do around Penn State. I always enjoy speaking with people in K-12 and find it an interesting challenge to make what I have to say work in their contexts.
I will be once again giving a talk at the Penn State Libraries focusing on the rise of social media and its impact in higher education. I will be giving a updated and revised version of my "Enabling the New Classroom Conversation" talk to a University-wide audience. I will be presenting in Foster Auditorium, but it will also be made openly available on Media Site Live. As the date approaches I will share the URL.
I've been invited to give a talk to the Penn State Learning Centers related to the explosion of social media and its potential impact in education. This will be an opportunity to speak to not only University faculty and staff, but also to students. I always find it interesting getting to share thoughts with such mixed groups -- and I love getting to see how students react to my perspective on "their" space.
