I just wanted to remind you all know that our next meeting for the Maryland New Media Tech/Web 2.0 group will be Wednesday June 17th at 6:00 pm at the Aquilent Conference Center.

For our second meetup, we were able to secure a great speaker and a close friend, Matt Monjan from Discovery Communications. This will be a Case Study of how Discovery Communications is using Web 2.0 to engage Digital Natives

Matt currently leads the Mid-Atlantic team for Discovery's Education Network (DEN) team. At Discovery, Matt works with school systems and educators to promote effective strategies and solutions for engaging and stimulating a new generation of students - Digital Natives.
Included below is an outline of some of the topics Matt will be covering:
1) The world of Web 2.0 from his perspective (what it is, why it's in our lexicon, where it's heading)
2) Who is Web 2.0 (demographics)
3) How is Web 2.0 effectively being used within-

This should be a fun evening. We will offer up light refreshments (drinks and snack food). I look forward to seeing you all there.
A little bit more about Matt - Matt has held leadership positions on both the Digital Media Implementation and the Discovery Educator Network teams. He is based in Discovery Education's World Headquarters in Silver Spring, MD and manages the Discovery Educator Network activities for Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Delaware, New Jersey, and Washington, DC. Prior to joining the Discovery Education team in 2004, Matt designed, developed, and implemented adult education and certification programs for two of the largest trade associations in the country. Matt speaks across the country including presentations at local, state, and regional conferences, among them FETC, PETE&C, MASSCUE, Christa McAuliffe, VSTE and MICCA.

I hope to see you all there
