These kids were so great! I loved hanging out with them on the panel. My favorite part was when they implored their teachers to let them us interactive tools!

Introduce Yourself  - 
 
Hey There -

I'm Chris Fitzgerald Walsh from the SF Bay Area. I work for New Tech Network, a nation non-profit trying to transform teaching and learning through  project-based learning, technology, and a culture of collaboration. We are part of large national effort around Deeper Learning, and there are a number of our partner organizations interested in MOOCs - so this is perfect.

I also produce an internet TV show for educators called The Infinite Thinking Machine. You can connect with me on Twitter (@fitzwalsh). 

I look forward to learning alongside everyone!

Love the name of the show watched the CES episode and I think I'd have loved to watch this as a kid.
My partner used to work in fundraising and Development for NYSCI so I know how hard but rewarding is working in education. Every positive thing done ripples throughout unexpected shores. Best of lucks!

That's good to hear +Jim Sill. Thanks, Chris!

I'm starting a week-long experiment/trial on how I want to share and still have time left to brush my teeth each day. :) Time savers needed. This is appreciated.
