Announcing Speaker Lineup for #140edu NYC 2011

Since the first #140conf, Education and the real-time web is a topic I have covered at almost all of our events. Earlier this year I decided to develop a two day focused conference to explore “The State of Education NOW” which lead to the launch of #140edu, taking place August 2-3 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.

Education is at the front of every parent’s mind. We all worry – are our children learning what they need to be fully realized citizens of the world? Please join Science Academy’s Chris Lehmann and myself at #140edu for this special two-day event.

#140edu offers special pricing for educators and students. We are inviting all bloggers – who cover education, parenting, and social issues that pertain to education to join us. Click here to review the #140edu schedule.
