IdeaJam: Creativity and Technology in the Classroom
On Monday, 5/2, we have a big day in store. We are reaching out to many teachers, classrooms and education luminaries throughout the US. Join us by watching via LiveStream http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9YULZJwJuI and follow us on Twitter at @IntelEdge. Educators, experts, parents, teachers and students from a variety of backgrounds and points of view will come together to flex their creative muscles on teaching and learning solutions. Moderated by Alan November (NovemberLearning.com), the “IdeaJam”, sponsored by Intel and Google/YouTube will ask participants to problem-solve and create new ideas for classroom design that integrate technology and help boost creativity. The IdeaJam program is a truly interactive experience. Technology helps elevate the discussion to a higher level, creating a conversation around creativity and education, and allows for a robust dialogue that is both in the room and generated live, online. You can join in the conversation on Twitter @IntelEdge or check out the livestream on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9YULZJwJuI. The stream will begin at 9:30am PT on May 2.
