Free Webinar: Digital Schools: How technology can transform education

Education Week is offering this FREE webinar on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 ---- you do have to REGISTER for the FREE live webinar.

Digital Schools: How Technology Can
Transform Education
This event takes place on Wednesday, July 31, 2013, 2 to 3 p.m. ET.
Nearly a century ago, famed educator John Dewey said, "If we
teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of
tomorrow." This wisdom resonates more strongly than ever today,
and that maxim underlies this insightful look at the present and
future of education in the digital age. In this webinar, Darrell West
will discuss key findings from his book, Digital Schools: How
Technology Can Transform Education, which examines new
models of education made possible by enhanced information
technology, and how new approaches will make public education
in the post-industrial age more relevant, efficient, and ultimately
more productive. West will explain how today’s educational
institutions must reinvent themselves to engage students successfully
and provide them with the skills needed to compete in an increasingly
global, technological, and online world. West will share the potential
contributions of blogs, wikis, social media, and video games and
augmented reality in K–12 and higher education.
