Give Education a Second LIfe

by R. Kowaney

Help us create a vision for CHOICE in education… And WIN AN iPOD!

We are a group of graduate students from Pepperdine University composed of K12, Higher Ed and Corporate educators who want to make a difference in learning. We want to empower educators of all ages to give learners meaningful experiences through CHOICE.

Please join us in Second Life at the NMC Campus on the "Quad" at Teaching 2 on Sunday, July 8 at 5:00 pm (SLT/PST) or Monday, July 9 at 8:00 pm (SLT/PST) for a dynamic session of discussion and reflection on CHOICE in learning – "Give Education a Second Life". The event will feature an interview between renowned ed tech blogger Steve Hargadon and ed tech provocateur Dr. Gary Stager.

You could change someone's perspective of learning forever!
