Global STEM

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away…

Or, well maybe not all that long ago, and not really that far away, I was once a Professor of Technology in Education at Lesley University, and Educational Technology was a field that I worked in for 20+ years.

Every once in awhile it is nice to go back and be reminded of how much I cared about the discipline and why. Thus I was happy to have the chance to attend The Third Global STEM Education Center Symposium that was co-sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Education on their campus (Friday, May 6th).

The symposium was chaired by Isa Zimmerman, my former Program Director back during my days at Lesley University, and also the current President of The Global STEM Education Center (co-sponsor of the symposium). They are engaged in a bevy of exciting and valuable work. Be sure to check out the site.

It was a wonderful event where I got to re-connect with former colleagues and meet new ones as well. Most importantly, I found out, yes indeed, I am still very passionate about STEM in general and Educational Technology in particular!

Here are a few snaps I took to give you a sense of the event…
