Today I enjoyed the great privilege of listening to a dozen plus speakers discuss ideas technological, educational and design-al (TEDx Creative Coast) - all centered on "decoding the future". Each participant proved a wonder; so much to think about. There is not ONE idea that I can claim as the best or most provocative. What I gathered is a hodge-podge of all the ideas: grab something, a problem, an idea and make it work, make it beautiful, instructional, transformative and turn EVERYTHING on its side if you possibly can.
On the edge of my seat in seeing a former student's enlightening performance and dedication to the lives beyond his own. Doesn't seem fair to even say "student" when mentioning him, because clearly I am the tutee. Alarmed and at attention by the sounds and truly intellectual and academic thinking of Gullah-Geechee scholar-musician man David Pleasant. Such a thrill to revel in sound at the same time one de-cobwebs the brain!!!!
In summary, attend any conference you can. If you can't, it's online for the streaming.
