Alan Kay (inventor of the personal computer), David Pogue (tech writer for the New York Times and author of the Missing Manual series of books) are keynoting. Featured speakers include Hall Davidson, Wesley Fryer, Bruce Dixon, and Gary Stager.
Alan Kay is probably the most profound thinker about technology and learning of our generation. The laptop, the Graphical User Interface (GUI), P2P networking, and Squeak are but a few of his contributions. David Pogue is wildly entertaining and his keynotes include singing and piano playing.
Not only do you get this lineup of speakers, but you get access to Infocomm, which is a techie’s dream come true. Now in its fourth year, EduComm is the only national technology management conference focused on the integration of audio-visual and information technology to enhance the classroom experience. This year’s focus is Web 2.0 - wikis, blogging, online collaboration tools and more - and how these applications are changing the face of education.
