The January 10 AnthroTech Meetup will focus on technology issues in education. We'll have two outstanding speakers:
-- Ricki Goldman is an NYU Professor of Educational Communication & Technology, a digital ethnographer and a leading theorist on learning and media. She will discuss "Gen-E," or "Generation Ethnographers" -- the emerging generation of people who use social media to document their world. She'll also show some of the digital video analysis tools she's designed for use in ethnographies in school settings.
-- Ken Perlin is Director of NYU's Games for Learning Institute, an NYU Professor of Computer Science, and the winner of a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences for his work on procedural texture. He'll demo a system he's developing to allow multiple developers to collaborate on programming in Google Docs, discussing its implications for creating better eBooks.
We'll have a discussion with the speakers followed by audience Q&A and then, as always, networking over wine. Please join us! If you cannot join in person, feel free to follow our live broadcast via Google Hangout. Instructions: before 7 pm, join the AnthroTech Google+ page at http://bit.ly/10iEMjN and follow the on-screen directions. The broadcast will also be on Youtube after the event.
