Hey everyone, mark your calendars! This Saturday, April 13th I’ll be taking part in Student Voice Live!, being held here in New York City but streamed live worldwide. This is an education summit that brings together students, leaders in education and the community for daylong discussion, collaboration and innovation on topics of importance as chosen by the students themselves.
I’ll be on a 12 person panel discussing the topic “Uncommon Routes of Learning”. StuVoice describes our session as follows:
“Education and learning from K-20 go beyond the four walls of a classroom or a lecture hall and many times look different than what we think of as traditional schooling. Yet, these formats are not widely discussed or adopted. Homeschoolers, dropouts, stop-outs, on-line learners, students from alternative schools as well as teachers and parents of these students will share their path to teaching and learning. Attendees will leave with a new understanding of these approaches and the possibilities they may hold for the future of learning.”

Hope to “see” you all there!
