Will Free Benefit the Rich?: Fighting for Technology Equity from EdTechTeacher on Vimeo.

Keynotes and Invited Talks

I speak frequently about learning and technology, addressing issues of leadership, vision, professional development, and equity. My lectures challenge audiences to re-think the possibilities and challenges of learning in a networked world. If you’d like me to speak at your conference or event, please contact me.

(Note: for parsimony, talks with slightly different titles are listed below under one common title, usually the most recent. A full list of keynotes, conference presentations, invited talks, and workshops can be found in my C.V.)
