Where will you be on August 2nd and 3rd? I will be speaking at the #140edu conference in New York City held at the 92ns Street Y. If you are not familiar with the #140 conferences, here is what you need to know: 140 Characters Conference started back in 2009 by Jeff Pulver with the idea of sharing (in real time) the effects of twitter on business and the world. The most recent #140 Conference held June 15 and 16th in New York City included speakers NBC Today’s Show host, Ann Curry, Adam Ostrow, editor in chief of Mashable, Mayor of Newark NJ, Cory Booker, Andy Carvin of NPR, and Craig Newmark, founder of Craig’s List to name a few. Each speaker gets ten minutes to talk, connect, inspire and share with the audience. You can watch the speakers from the June conference online.
This summer Jeff Pulver has partnered with Chris Lehmann, principal of Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia to organize a conference in New York City that addresses the state of education NOW. Topics to include the current effects of technology on education and student learning from Facebook to Twitter. Both Chris and Jeff are bringing amazing people together talk about all aspects of education from classroom practice to politics.
