A Smart Grid for Education

Fueling the Innovation Economy
Location: Independence Ballroom A Level:

Let’s face it: schools are the coal-fired plants of our education grid. They provide “base load” education, but there are additional opportunities for learning everywhere. How can we make it easy to find those opportunities? How can we give students credit for them? Dale Dougherty, publisher of Make: Magazine and the wildly popular Maker Faire events, which draw hundreds of thousands of people to a festival of Do-It-Yourself science and technology innovation, will talk about his vision for turbocharging science, technology, and math education.
