Here’s cross-post from the DEN Blog – mark your calendars…it’ll be a special treat!!
“On Wednesday, November 19th, Alan Kay will be our featured speaker on EdTechConnect, a free webinar series from Discovery Education. While this is open to all educators, I strongly recommend you only share the link with colleagues of your that have an open mind. Alan will most certainly stretch the way you think about education. Register yourself and then pass the link along. I know I say this often, but this is one webinar you will NOT want to miss!
Alan Kay is a technology pioneer who has consistently been at the forefront of the computer age. He was one of the first researchers to realize the significance of mobile computing in education, and his ideas have been a major influence in the OLPC project.
“The important thing here is that the music is not in the piano. And knowledge and edification is not in the computer. The computer is simply an instrument whose music is ideas.” – Alan Kay
