CADE por la Educación brought together some of the leading figures in education, government, and business from throughout Perú to talk about the future of learning. Although the video starts about 10 minutes into my presentation, you can see my talk here. Most of the audio is translated en español, which may be helpful. Or not. The video concludes with a Q&A from this year’s president of IPAE (from 41:00 to 56:30). By the way, if you’re wondering, my headset mic failed early on (the reason the video starts midway through) so I got to use a handheld. Being such a gesticulator, I decided to put it in my shirt pocket to free up my hands: both fashionable and functional!


Thanks, EdCrunch!


I had a spectacular time at Moscow’s EdCrunch. Amazing speakers (including Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales), great exhibits, and some spectacular conversations. It was a privilege to participate. If you’d like to see the video of my keynote, you can watch it here.


Thank you, CADE por la Educación 2016

I had the privilege of being part of an amazing conference in Lima, Perú this past week. Organized by the Instituto Peruano de Administración de Empresas (IPAE), CADE por la Education 2016 brought together teachers, administrators, government officials, and business leaders from throughout Perú to consider how to take learning “out of the box.” Emphasizing experiential learning and civic engagement, the high points of this conference for me were the presentations by students — an impassioned and articulate middle-schooler who challenged us to rethink how we’re preparing him and his classmates for the new digital world and a student orchestra who showed that music and passion can unlock learning for all. Be sure to check their site for videos and updates about this amazing conference.


See you at ISTE in Denver

It’s been a few years, but I’m looking forward to participating in this year’s ISTE conference in Denver next week. I’ll be helping with two sessions: joining my ADE colleagues for the “iTools for Educators” learning academy all day on Sunday (I’ll be focusing on designing and working with Apple’s Keynote) and delivering a lecture called “Learning Out of the Box” on Tuesday afternoon at 4pm. I look forward to seeing old friends — and new — and to connecting with lots of people who are passionate about learning for themselves and for their students. Looking forward to seeing you there!
