Come take the course I am co-teaching: Education and Public Policy (HUDF 4000) at Teachers College. It is being offered on Mondays from 5:10-6:50 pm. For my 3-week section of the course, I will be focusing on the intersection of information policy and educational policy. In particular, we will be investigating how broad flows and presentations of information are being shaped by various public and private entities and the impact of such information on learning opportunities for individuals. We have lots of interactive activities planned and some cutting-edge readings on the subject, including Sandra Braman’s book, Change of State: Information, Policy, and Power
Although this summer for me has been rather outdoorsy (second trip to Harriman State Park and lots of running in LA), it hasn’t been all fun in the sun. I just recently presented at the CSCL 2007 conference at Rutgers, which was a great opportunity because of all the good questions we received. Hopefully more thought-provoking conferences are to come!
I ran my first race ever in Central Park this past Saturday. My mile time was 6:42 minutes and total time was 33:31. For all the pics, click here
Just got back from the great state of Alabama. Looking back at the pictures, I would have to say the theme was “American Muscle”. The rocket and the literal rockets were quite cool.
I am just finishing up my little bit of R&R in West Hollywood and on my way to AERA in Chicago. Of course the plane is delayed.
If you’re going to AERA, please visit our presentation on Monday afternoon at 12:50pm:
On March 20-21 from 12p-2p, I will be presenting “Super Sexy Tech Projects” at the EdLab seminar, held at the EdLab (5th Floor of the Gottesman Libraries at Teachers College, Columbia University). Additional presentations will be made by the others members of the Technology Solutions and Innovations group. For more information, click on the below links:
The last time I saw Officer McGruff, he was trying to convince my fifth grade class to avoid the perils of drug use. It looks like he has been re-appropriated for the 21st century, this time fighting cyber-crime. Hopefully he will be more effective on the war against online predators than the war against drugs 🙂
My newest passion is a baby-blue 1970 Mercedes-Benz 220D. I had been interested in a vintage Mercedes for awhile, but was pushed over the edge during my summer trip to Provincetown, where I noticed that they still use the old Benzs for cabs. So far, very happy with the purchase.
I’ve just got back from vacation and have returned to the real world. Here are some pics from my vacation– now I see why those Kennedys keep going back to Cape Cod.
