Doug Johnson - Writing, Speaking and Consulting on school technology and library issues. ..."These printable sessions are tailored for school media specialists, technology coordinators, administrators, and teachers. All are illustrated with involving computerized slide presentations, include handouts, and include both theory and practical applications. And of course, humor is a very large part of every presentation - and sometimes it is even intentional. Evaluations of these sessions have been consistently highly rated. These workshops are constructivist based. Each workshop has clearly stated goals, practical handouts, lots of discussion and small group work. My goal in a workshop is to have each participant return to his/her institution with a working plan of action to create change." - Doug Johnson

TED Conference - TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes). Search for talks on Education.
