Connecting the Classroom, or Creatively Collaborating in Convergence Culture

I'll be traveling to Atlanta in a few weeks to attend a Powerful Learning Practices conference with several colleagues from my school. It will be held at The Lovett School.

I've followed some of the technology and teaching conversations over the last few years, have participated in it, and always discover new voices and new perspectives. One is from Will Richardson, author, blogger, and educational consultant; the other from Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, blogger and consultant-collaborator. Both will facilitate the conversation in Atlanta. (Other perspectives I read come from Henry Jenkins, author of Convergence Culture, and Jeff Howe, author of Crowdsourcing, among others.)

Anyone familiar with their work and/or approaches? I like what I've seen and read so far.

The Lovette School is big time when discussing private schools. Look at Robert Sanderson, a PHD who teaches AP European History. You will enjoy your visit there.

Thanks for the lead, Eddie. I'll have to track him down.
