Over the past couple of months I have been asked to give presentations at a variety of different conferences or organizations spread across the world. They are archived below.
I was invited to give a talk as part of the Dean’s Lecture Series at the School of Education, Drexel University. My talk was titled: Design pencils, universities and everything in between.
Dean’s Lecture Series
Drexel University School of Education
I was invited by the Friday Institute at North Carolina State University to serve on a panel on the topic of Exploring Next-Generation Education: K-12 Trends that Mater for 2021.
The introduction to the session was as follows (and the video is embedded below):
We’ve had an extremely challenging year—a global pandemic, ongoing racial injustice and inequities, and more recently an insurrection on our country’s capitol. Educators navigated their way through these compounded issues. They summoned their creativity and resiliency to support and engage students. With this dramatic backdrop, we move into 2021 with wounds, disappointments and hope for a brighter collective future. The goal of this panel discussion is to surface K-12 trends that matter for humanity. As community members, what do we need to be relentless about? As policy makers, what do we need to let go? As educators, how do we create spaces for transformation that can usher in new ways of thinking about and doing education? Join thought leaders as they analyze, predict and dream of next-generation schools.
The Public Interest Technology University Network is a partnership that fosters collaboration between universities and colleges committed to building the nascent field of public interest technology and growing a new generation of civic-minded technologists. Ariel Anbar and I were invited to be part of a panel on embedding humanistic values in STEM education, specifically focused on our recently concluded STEM-Futures project. You can read my blog post about the project, a description on the MLFTC website or visit the project pages at STEM-futures.org.
