Just announced, a fantastic adventure in computers and learning for educators this summer – the Constructing Modern Knowledge Institute. I’m excited to be participating in this event.
Constructing Modern Knowledge will be a minds-on summer institute for educators July 28-31, 2008 at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, NH. In addition to four days full of computer-rich learning adventures for creative educators, Constructing Modern Knowledge features amazing guest speakers, a BBQ at a minor league baseball game and a night on the town in nearby Boston.
Since knowledge is a consequence of experience, Constructing Modern Knowledge, is designed to create a context for remarkable learning experiences. Instead of spending a conference listening to an endless series of speakers, Constructing Modern Knowledge, enables participants to spend time working on hands-on projects, learning how to create minds-on classrooms, and interacting with educational pioneers and colleagues from around the world.
- Alfie Kohn – one of education’s most provocative speakers and bestselling authors
- Bob Tinker – director of the Concord Consortium, inventor of science probes for learning, and a foremost authority on technology for math and science education
- Cynthia Solomon – co-developed the Logo programming language with Seymour Papert
- Peter Reynolds – beloved artist, software designer and children’s book author
The rest of our team has expertise in creativity, multimedia authoring, student empowerment, programming, robotics and a whole lot more. I’m honored to be part of this team – this is so in the GenYES spirit and I hope to see some GenYES teachers there!
Hotel accommodation is affordable and Manchester, NH has one of the most convenient and affordable airports in the United States. Constructing Modern Knowledge is also within a reasonable drive of most cities in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states.
I can’t wait to spend four days working on creative projects with like-minded educators.
Space is limited, so register today!
