The Preparation to Practice Group is pleased to announce that the first Horizon Forum meeting of this year will be held on October 3 from 8:30 – 11:00am in the historic Upson Room at the Walter Library on the University of Minnesota East Bank campus.
Two visiting speakers from the Faculty of Latin American Social Sciences in Mexico will discuss initiatives to bridge technologies between classrooms (co-seminars), and the use of electronic media in classrooms to completely replace traditional textbooks to transform pedagogies:
- Giovanna Valenti, Director General, FLACSO México
Internet-mediated co-seminars: Reflections on the Mexican experience
- Cristóbal Cobo, Communications Director, FLACSO México
Enciclomedia: Redesigning curricula with videos, text, virtual visits, sounds and images
Space for the event is limited! RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Horizon Forum is an ongoing discussion group, focused on the role of innovation and the future of PreK-17 education. The Forum is sponsored by the Preparation to Practice Group in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota.
