Join us on UBC-Okanagan Campus for an unconference on technology, culture, and education! Unconferences are participant-driven events that facilitate peer-to-peer learning and collaboration. This unconference will be hosted on UBC-Okanagan Campus. There are two sessions, and attendees can come to either or both: June 18th from 1:30pm-5:00pm and June 19th from 9:30am-12:30am. Check the GoogleDoc below to know what day sessions are proposed for, or show up and propose an idea on the day! Are you: An entrepreneur or business owner who wants to hire students with critical thinking and technology skills? A student interested in culture, history, and technology? A teacher interested in how to teach technology and culture together? A researcher interested in how technology and culture come together in different classrooms? A librarian or public sector employee interested in supporting learning in technology and culture?
If you have an idea about technology and culture, how you'd like education to address these topics, or problems that education can solve, propose a session! Sessions can be presentations, brainstorming sessions, or workshops. Commit to as much as giving a presentation or as little as asking a question and facilitating a discussion. Have an idea or interest? Add it to the GoogleDoc proposed schedule here: http://bit.ly/TCE_Unconf Want more information about unconferences?
