April 4 Monday Music, Announcements

It’s Monday! Here are our latest announcements at the beginning of a VERY busy week.

Social Learning Summit Wrap-Up

Sls11_tweet_cloudWe’re back from attending and hosting the SAFE TEXT panel at the Social Learning Summit in Washington, DC, hosted by the American University Social Media Club. We had a great time and met some amazing people. We’ll have some information on our blog about the event throughout the next week. In the mean time, here’s the Tweet Cloud as of 11 AM this morning for #SLS11. People are still actively connecting with the hashtag so it’s a work in progress.

 

Scholarship Applications Due This Friday

Remember, you have until Friday at 11:59PM to submit your application for one of our Spring 2011 Scholarships. The competition is fierce so make sure your application is great! Our next blog post will announce our Scholarship Selection Panel.

Upcoming Speaking Engagements

I am speaking at some upcoming private events. This Saturday, I’ll speaking at the Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund Conference for Aspiring Teachers of Color at Brown University in Providence, RI. Next Monday, I’ll be speaking at The American Education Research Association’s Annual Conference in New Orleans on teacher preparation and the job market. Wish me luck!

The Make The Change You Want Networking Event

I am happy to announce a new partnership with Brett Kunsch, personal coach and founder of Millennial Coach. On April 19th, we’ll be co-hosting a networking event around goal setting, making change, and realizing the vision you want for your life. More information coming, but the event is open for RSVPs now.

Music Monday

This song comes to mind after the Social Learning Summit. I felt like we were planning a revolution for personal and community empowerment. What if you ruled the world? (BTW, Lyrics not safe for work!)
