Cross-posted from the EduTech blog – because I’m super excited about this!
The 29th Annual MSU College of Education Technology conference will be held on October 27th, 2012 on the beautiful campus of Michigan State University in Erickson Hall from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm. The theme of this year’s conference is open and networked education and it is quite fitting that through a collaboration between the College of Education, the MSU College of Education Alumni Association and the Master of Arts in Educational Technology Program, this year’s conference will be FREE OF CHARGE to all attendees. (Stay tuned for registration information!)
We are also excited to announce that Dr. Alec Couros will be our keynote speaker for this year’s conference. Alec is an Associate Professor of educational technology and media at the Faculty of Education, University of Regina. He has given hundreds of workshops and presentations, nationally and internationally, on topics such as openness in education, networked learning, social media in education, digital citizenship, and critical media literacy. His graduate and undergraduate courses help current and future educators understand how to use and take advantage of the educational potential offered by the tools of connectivity.
