I am excited about tomorrow’s Emerging Tech webinar hosted by Michelle Luhtala and featuring Doug Johnson.  Please consider joining us in this interactive conversation.

Here are the details:

Wednesday, Sep. 16 at 5 p.m. Eastern Time
It’s Blocked! How Internet Filters Impact K-12 Learning
Presented by Doug Johnson, blogger and author; Dr. Joyce Valenza, Director of Rutgers University Masters of Information Program; and Michelle Luhtala, Head Librarian, New Canaan High School, CT

In This Session
A comprehensive 21st century education should help students build a positive digital footprint, but many students don’t have access to the online learning tools this requires. Join Doug Johnson, Dr. Joyce Valenza and Michelle Luhtala for a conversation about the impact of overzealous filtering on teaching and learning in K-12 schools. Doug and Joyce will explain how opening channels of communication for learners improves equity, teaches digital citizenship, and promotes intellectual freedom.
