This year we have two awesome keynote speakers. Doug Johnson, Director of Libraries and Technology for the Mankato Area Public Schools in Mankato, Minnesota will be joining us on Thursday with a keynote, Changing the One-Right Answer Mentality: the Subversive Educator’s Guide to Creativity. Doug is very well known in K12 education and library communities as a leader, author, and all around awesome guy. Most of what you need to know is wrapped into the “My Biases” section of his website. http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/my-biases/.
On Friday we’ll be joined by Dr. Richard Halverson, an Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education, where he co-founded the Games Learning and Society (GLS) research group. He is also a Fellow at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, an affiliate member of the UW-Madison Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Psychology departments, and a founding member of the UW-Madison Learning Sciences program area.
