Commission for Educational Technology Meeting - June 16th

Are you tired of final exams, graduation ceremonies, senior pranks and all the other end of year drama in your district?  Consider attending the final meeting for the year of the Commission for Educational Technology, to be held at the Legislative Office Building (next door to the Capitol) on Wednesday June 16, 2010 from 10:00-12:00 in Hearing Room 1C.

We are fortunate to have a guest presenter for this meeting – Dr. Don Leu, the John and Maria Neag Endowed Chair in Literacy and Technology at the University of Connecticut. Don will speak and answer questions on “How the Internet Redefines Reading, Writing, and Learning: How We Must Respond to Compete in a Globalized, Online World”. As one who has followed Don’s work for several years, I can assure you that his presentation of ideas will give you a lot to think about!  

The meeting is open to the public - all are welcome.
