Making of a Learning Theater

With an upcoming year-long exhibition highlighting the 125-year history of Teachers College, EdLab designers are focused on eliciting "audience" participation in our exhibition environment – three floors of Russell Hall (nearly 30,000 sq. ft.!). …

Today I attended the final day of an intensive workshop event hosted by Working Films. The event brought together a diverse group of talented filmmakers, powerful activists, and leaders in the education sector – I was lucky I got to crash their party!

Changing Teaching with Learning.com 

"You are innovators" is the message to the teachers at Learning.com's second annual professional development workshop in Portland, Oregon. I'm attending the workshop to learn more about their really interesting new software, Sky.
