It’s already mid-August and summer is over (or nearly over) for many of us educators. Hard to believe it came and went so quickly. The excitement of a new school year is hard to beat –new students, new curricula, new practices to explore, and new tools make it such a delightful time. Just in case you need something else to get excited about, the 2011 Schools of the Future Conference is right around the corner. Organized by HAIS and the Hawaii Community Foundation the conference is on September 8th from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm at the Sheraton Waikiki. The keynote address will be presented by Alan November, an international thought leader in educational technology. The breakout session speakers are diverse (click here for more information), representing perspectives from advocacy organizations (K-12 and higher education), corporations (i.e. Apple), foundations, and charter schools. The conference is open to all educators, administrators, parents, and students. For more information, view the program or visit the website.
