I'll be presenting Esplori at SWSXedu Conference & Festival 2014, held in Austin - Texas from March 3rd to 6th. The conference is today one of the leading education oriented events in the country. It seeks to drive meaningful conversation and collaboration around the most promising practices to improve teaching and learning by bringing about a forward-learning community of education innovators, all committed to creating a brighter tomorrow.
The Conference introduces thought-provoking featured and keynote speakers - from recognized scholars to CEOs and members of innovative education organizations - that will attempt to shed light on today’s leading topics in education. Also, the conference is enriched by a diverse combination of additional sessions and workshops which follow the same pattern of speakers and topics.
I will be participating on an one hour Core Conversation session on the topic Survival in the New Knowledge Economy with professional musician David Brake - founder of the online education organizations Teacher 2 Go LLC and LRNGO.com. Here's the summary of our discussion:
What effect do the economic and technological changes taking place today have on adult education inside and outside of the classroom? Are the goals the same, or have the rules changed? Are we addressing these changes holistically, or ignoring them hoping they’ll go away? Let’s take a step back, and have a conversation about the challenges and opportunities these changes present.
Thursday, March 6
10:30AM - 11:30AM

I am excited to announce that on July 1-6 I will be in Doha, Qatar, speaking at one of the largest conferences about education in the world.
It is my honour and pleasure to be presenting alongside Ed Gragert, Executive Director Emeritus of iEARN-USA, a non-profit organization made up of over 50,000 schools and youth organizations in more than 140 countries, which empowers teachers and young people to work together online using the Internet and other new communications technologies. Over 2,000,000 students each day are engaged in collaborative project work worldwide.
I will be presenting my latest project, Esplori:
Imagine if the sum of all human knowledge were available to everyone, anywhere on earth, in any language, on video.
I am truly excited to be there, because more than just speaking, I will be running a workshop, to see how we can help educators and students around the world, hear their stories, and work alongside them.
I believe that if one wants to help, they must first listen and learn, and that's what I will be doing there.
