I am super excited!
I was asked to participate in the PBS Teaching & Learning Celebration March 5 & 6 (this weekend!!!). The Celebration has been termed the “world’s fair of education” and has visitors, presenters and speakers that are influential in the education world.
I am super excited about the following presentations:
- 8:30-9:30 Chris Emdin – a professor of mine whose research focuses on multiculturally relevant science teaching
- 10:00-11:00 Lisa Henson – of the Henson dynasty, encouraging teachers to create environments where children are encouraged to explore and discover
- 11:15-12:15 Steve Spangler – science teacher, famous for his educationally rich toy designs
- 1:00-2:15 Arne Duncan & Richard Riley – two secretaries of state discuss the state of education in America
- 2:30-3:30 Sid the Science Kid – the makers of my favorite childrens’ television show lead a teacher workshop session
I’ve got to look at the schedule again to see what I want to do in the afternoon section – so many good options!
Stay tuned – I’ll be posting during every presentation!
