Digital Wave Conference
The 11th Annual
$40 Per Person – Includes Lunch – Payable to NYSCATE
Join Scott Merrick as he discusses "Working in the Space Outside of the Space Outside of the Box. " Scott Merrick has been pushing boundaries with technology in education for decades, starting with stringing telephone lines from an office phone jack through drop ceilings to his public school classroom in order to bring his 4th graders into a national collaborative project, Journey North, in the mid 90's. He moved to a private school setting where he once again crawled around in the ceiling in order to facilitate CuSeeMe videoconferencing with his 3rd graders and 4th grade partners in Kobe, Japan. He has served founding and/or leadership roles in the Interactive Videoconferencing, the Virtual Environments, and the Online Learning Professional Learning Networks in the International Society for Technology in Education, and he holds the President's Volunteer Service Award. Scott was T.H.E. Journal's Innovator of the Month for June, 2014 and he now works with a small team of innovators who crafted and maintain, and grow, online learning options in a large public school system in Nashville, Tennessee. Scott will share successes, challenges, and suggestions not just for thinking out of thebox, but actually getting past that space and working in the area beyond it. See Scott's personal "About.Me" page at http://about.me/scottmerrick for ways to connect.
