We have a fabulous opportunity for DEN Stars in the tri-state area. We are giving away 2 tickets to the Celebration of Teaching and Learning!
This amazing two day conference takes place March 18th and 19th in New York City. And our very own Guru, Nancy Sharoff will be presenting. If you’re around on Saturday, stop by and say hello. She’ll be presenting a workshop from 11:15 to 12:30 on Concourse E, Lower Level titled ‘Cyber-Bullying: wot R U doin bout it?’.
Here is how the Celebration is described on the website.
“Come share your knowledge and be inspired at The Celebration of Teaching & Learning 2011! The Celebration—presented by THIRTEEN and WLIW21—is a premier professional development conference that brings together the world’s best thinkers, practitioners, and more than 10,000 educators to share their passion for teaching and learning. This two-day experience for educators happens March 18-19, 2011 at the Hilton New York in New York City.
A prominent educator once dubbed the Celebration as the “World’s Fair of Education.” Our sixth anniversary will bring experts and content from the areas of the Arts, English Language Arts, Global Awareness, Health & Wellness, Instructional Technology, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Social Studies, Special Education and Whole School Issues.
Throughout the two days, attendees will experience four distinct learning environments through our six plenary sessions, nearly 40 Featured Speaker sessions, over 100 hands-on “In the Classroom” workshops, and two filled exhibitor halls featuring the latest in educational tools, interactive events and book signings.
The Celebration is perhaps best known for its remarkable Keynote Speakers, men and women who are at the very top of their fields and whose insight will raise your expectations for your profession and for yourselves. Past notable speakers have included U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Queen Noor, Bobby McFerrin, Sir Kenneth Robinson, UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall, Google Chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt, world-renowned autistic scholar Temple Grandin, MacArthur Genius Award-winning environmental pioneer Majora Carter, and many more.
The 2011 Celebration, our sixth anniversary, will once again gather global experts with PreK-12 educators to foster creativity and encourage lifelong learning in and out of the classroom. We’re excited to announce our dynamic list of nationally acclaimed speakers continues to grow! Brian Williams, NBC Nightly News Anchor and Managing Editor, and Dr. Mehmet Oz, cardio-thoracic surgeon and Emmy Award Winning Nationally Syndicated Talk Show Host have joined our list of speakers which includes Dr. Oliver Sacks, Leymah Gbowee, Walter Dean Myers, Diane Ravitch and many more, from the worlds of the Arts, English Language Arts, Global Awareness, Health & Wellness, Instructional Technology, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Social Studies, Special Education and Whole School Issues.”
