You're invited: Renowned educator Alan November speaks to the community on 10/22

If you have a little time on Thursday, October 22, at 7:30 p.m., come on down to the BF Auditorium. Alan November will be speaking on “Preparing 21st Century Learners: How and Why Their Schooling is Different from Ours." Mr. November is a great speaker and his thoughts on this subject are really fascinating.

From the press release:
Mr. November is known as a dynamic speaker on the topic of the relationship between technology and learning. Named one of the nation’s 15 most influential thinkers of the decade by Classroom Computer Learning Magazine, he was also selected by the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse as one of eight educators to provide leadership into the future. In 2007 Mr. November was selected to speak at the Cisco Public Services Summit as part of the Nobel Prize festivities in Stockholm. His writing includes numerous articles and a best-selling book, Empowering Students with Technology. He is co-founder of the Stanford Institute for Educational Leadership Through Technology.
