I've always maintained that we need to look to the students of today to figure out what the adults are going to be doing next. We look at it with most things of technology. I'm not sure if these forums would exist if it wasn't for student groups building and collaborating on social media trends around the internet.
HP has always been a proud supporter of primary and secondary education. We invest in providing technology for schools as we know that the future is relying on these students to build something amazing.
I won't be attending these sessions in person, but if you'd like to join on the virtual feed, I'm sure it will be worth your time. Please let people that you may know in the education field about this opportunity.
You’re invited – virtually! HP, in collaboration with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), invites educators around the world to participate remotely in the 2010 HP Innovations in Education Worldwide Summit.
More than 100 educators in 23 countries will be attending the summit in person in California on 22-24 February to learn from education experts and innovation thought leaders such as:
- Michael Horn (co-author of “Disrupting Class”)
- Georges Haddad (UNESCO)
- Phil McKinney (HP Innovation “guru” www.philmckinney.com),
- David Williamson Schaffer (www.epistemicgames.org)
and students from California who will discuss how social media impacts their learning experience. You can join the excitement by participating in interactive webcasts, a virtual poster session contest, and following the event on Twitter (you can follow HP’s live tweets at @HP_OGSI or get involved in the conversation through #hpiie).
To participate, visit the Summit community at http://www.hpiie.org to download details about the speakers and the agenda.
