Join the conversation. #DoMoreEDU #StudentVoice
Dell brought together a group of vocal, social-savvy students, teachers and bloggers for our third Education Think Tank at the biggest education technology tradeshow, ISTE (#ISTE). The discussion was moderated by four outstanding young students, Zak Malamed, Nikhil Goyal, Allison Wu and Alex Banayan, and included participants from Dell, Ashoka, the founder of #edchat, entrepreneur Jonathon Feit and blogger Ken Royal. Many participants from the UK and New York Think Tanks tuned in online or stopped by as well.
The agenda for the day included sessions on analytical vs. practical learning, civic engagement, anti-bullying, the role of technology and education and more. Additional participants tuned in online via Livestream and the Twitter hashtags #DoMoreEDU and #StudentVoice.
We look forward to continuing the dialogue with this influential group of attendees via the weekly #StudentVoice Twitter chat (every Monday night at 8:30pm EST) and working to continue to support the students and their ideas.
