On Saturday, October 15, 2011, I am making a presentation titled "No Assembly Required" at the Edscape Conference at New Milford (NJ) High School.
Here are links to the presentation and the sources, quotes and photo credits contained in it.
I provide full contact info and information about Dulcinea Media at the end.
NO ASSEMBLY REQUIRED
The printed description of this presentation:
"A discussion of principles that should guide education companies, principals, curriculum specialists, department heads, library media specialists and progressive colleagues as they support classroom teachers who would like to embrace online content, relevant technology and a student-centered teaching style.
To launch the discussion, the presenter will discuss his experience in creating products for Dulcinea Media, whose mission is to help educators teach students how to use the Internet effectively, and the principles that guide current development."
The links contained in it are repeated below for your convenience.
I will update this presentation in the next few weeks with responses I receive during the presentation, and will create a video version of the presentation that incorporates these responses. This video will appear on our YouTube channel.
