For Georgia Educators — Alan November in September!

Just received this from the Georgia Independent School Association via e-mail:

On September 25 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm, the KSU ETC is proudly hosting a session with ALAN NOVEMBER “FREE” of charge for ALL Georgia educators to attend.  Alan November is recognized internationally as a leader in education technology. He began his career as an oceanography teacher at an island reform school for boys in Boston Harbor. He has been a director of an alternative high school, computer coordinator, technology consultant, and university lecturer. As practitioner, designer, and author, Alan has guided schools, government organizations and industry leaders as they plan to improve quality with technology.
Alan is well known for applying his humor and wit to inspire us to think about applying technology to improve learning. His areas of expertise include information and communication technology, planning across the curriculum, professional learning, building learning communities and leadership development. Alan was named one of the nation’s fifteen most influential thinkers of the decade by Classroom Computer Learning Magazine. In 2001, he was named one of eight educators to provide leadership into the future by the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse. His writing includes dozens of articles and the best-selling book, Empowering Students with Technology. His latest book is entitled, Web Literacy for Educators. Alan was co-founder of the Stanford Institute for Educational Leadership Through Technology and is most proud of being selected as one of the original five national Christa McAuliffe Educators. To read more about Alan, check him out on the web:
Please forward this email to your colleagues so they might have an opportunity to hear Alan speak on a very relevant topic: “Creating a New Culture of Teaching & Learning!”  We want as many teachers and administrators to hear him as possible!!! Please help us spread the word!
All the details–including REGISTRATION INFORMATION for the Alan November session can be found at . Alan's session will be held in Room 400 at the KSU Center–NOT on the main campus! :)”
If you're in Georgia, see if you can work it out!  I've wanted to hear him speak for a long time, but haven't as of yet had the privalege.  I'm maxed on my days out of school, so as of now, I don't think I'll be able to get up there. I'm going to try to get some of our teachers there.  (We are 3 1/2 hours away so it takes some time to get there.
