EdTechConnect presents David Warlick

Discovery Education is pleased to feature renown presenter and author
David Warlick on Wednesday Nov. 15 at 5:00PM
EST.


David3 Who:
David Warlick, a 30 year educator, has
been a classroom teacher, district administrator, and staff consultant with the
North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction. For the past ten years,
Mr. Warlick has operated The Landmark Project, a consulting, and innovations
firm in Raleigh, North Carolina. His web site, Landmarks for Schools, serves
more than ten-million visits a month with some of the most popular teacher tools
available on the Net. David is also the author of three books on instructional
technology and 21st century literacy, and has spoken to audiences throughout the
U.S., Europe, Asia, and South America.

Topic: You can not attend any kind of conference today
without someone standing in front of you and saying, “You must read “The World
is Flat.” In this enormously popular and talked about book, New York Times
columnist, Tom Friedman makes the case for a world that is increasingly global,
where industry is crossing political borders not only for natural resources and
cheap labor, but also contracting for the intellectual talent. The emerging and
increasingly ubiquitous Internet is promoting a world where geography means very
little when it is talent that helps you accomplish your goals.

Over the past two years, we have also seen an enormous flattening of the
information landscape where more and more of the content that resides on the
Internet comes from conversations than from formal publishing. Individuals are
writing and publishing their own digital magazines (blogs) and some of them are
making a living at it, entirely independent of publishers and printing.

So what about our classrooms. Are they flat too?

Cost: FREE!

This webinar will be limited to the first 200 people!  Registration link is

  1. Chris Champion

    I attended this webinar. I think the sidebar chat was *almost* as engaging as David Warlick!

  2. Maryann Molishus

    I attended the webinar and found it to be very insightful. There were good resources. I agree about the sidebar chat. I wondered what else everyone was doing besides participating in the webinar and chatting.

  3. Marilyn Melstein

    I also attended this webinar and, as always, find David Warlick to be very insightful and “right on the money.” I also enjoyed the sidebar chat and was wondering if anyone captured it.

  4. RJ Stangherlin

    I also attended the webinar, and agree with Chris that the sidebar was a webinar in itself. To answer Marilyn’s qustion, I copied and pasted the sidebar into a word document. Email me [rjstangherlin@stsd.org] if you want the chat.

    What amazed me was how multi-tasking we all were. I blogged on David Warlick’s site, posted notes, engaged in the sidebar conversation, and Skyped back and forth with Chris, Kristin at the end, and throughout the webinar with our new director of data and technology, Randy. As I watched the webinar, I thought how educationally powerful this lesson was and if/when we get mobile classrooms how much this type of activity would engage students. Just loved it.

    Any word on if/when this presentation will be archived? I couldn’t attend the live webinar, but would love to view the saved version.
