Watchworthy Wednesday: Apply to Present at DML2017 by May 1

Got an innovative program or research project dealing with connected learning or digital media and learning? We want to hear about it at this year’s Digital Media and Learning Conference, and the deadline to apply to be a featured speaker has been extended to May 1.

The 8th annual DML Conference is an international gathering that brings together a vibrant and diverse community of innovators, thinkers, and progressive educators to delve into leading-edge topics in digital media and learning. Attendees build connections across research, design, and practice in the service of progressive, equitable, and youth-centered approaches to learning with technology.

The conference, DML2017, will be held at the University of California, Irvine campus Oct. 4-6 and will feature a pre-conference workshop day, as well as two days of general sessions filled with opportunities to reimagine and remake learning in a connected world. The half- and full-day workshop topics include: tech equity, designing connected research for equity and justice, learning analytics, redesigning teacher preparation through practice spaces, supporting connected learning, open learning, maker education, libraries and games for learning.

Stay tuned for announcements on workshop details, keynote speakers, panel discussions and other conference details. For more information, visit the website.
