Another reminder -- if you see an email message from me (or anyone) sending a link to a "secure PDF document" on Dropbox, don't open it and enter your login info. It's spam/hack/phishing.

Also, seems like if you write to the sender to ask if it is okay to open, a fake message goes back to you from "the person" saying it's okay to open. It's not.....  #spam

Hi folks -- no, I didn't send you a link to a secure document on Dropbox. Don't open it. Also, seems like if you write to ask if it is okay, a message goes back to you from the person saying it's okay.  #spam

Check out this video about STEM pathways at Cal Academy -- nice look at the 'pathways for leveling up and connecting to opportunity' idea that is circling around the room at the retreat.

Folks will appreciate this useful report on after school STEM learning by Afterschool Alliance -- may apply to some of your Intersections work. Afterschool Alliance is a partner in Ed Innovator and works closely with ASTC, so they are part of the family
The report from the Afterschool Alliance studies outcomes from 11 after-school STEM programs that have a reputation for excellence.

Museum folks (and their new colleagues) might appreciate these new events on the Future of Museums. 

The New Media Consortium and LearningRevolution.com are gearing up for twin events about the "future of museums" on July 23rd & 24th. Both events are focused on four main themes from the NMC Horizon Report > 
2013 Museum Edition: Bring Your Own Device, 
Location-Based Services, 
Crowdsourcing, and 
Makerspaces. 

ON JULY 23RD the NMC Virtual Symposium on the Future of Museums is an exclusive symposium for you, the curators, creators, innovators, museum professionals, and educators. In this limited-space event, engage with panels on these topics and help shape the conversation – get your burning questions answered! More information at go.nmc.org/future-museums

ON JULY 24TH LearningRevolution.com is hosting the free, online Future of Museums Conference, a collaborative global conversation about technology, museums, and the future. This event will be held from 10am - 5pm US-Eastern Time, and will feature keynote speakers Suse Cairns, Lath Carlson, Alex Freeman, Jeffrey Inscho, Barry Joseph, Elizabeth Merritt, and Holly Witchey, and crowdsourced presentations by your peers. Attendees can expect to learn best practices to implement in their museums, and will hear real-world examples of innovative practices in the field. Curators, creators, innovators, museum professionals, and educators are encouraged to present. The Call for Proposals will be open for one more week, so please encourage your peers in the field to submit soon! We are looking forward to these fun events, and to your participation. More information at www.futureofmuseums.com.

Hi folks - If you get any messages from me with a dropbox link to a secure document, pass them by... they are spam/phishing messages.

For makers everywhere
 
Great talk by Leah Buechley (who designed the Lilypad Arduino, lead the High-Low Tech Research Group at the Media Lab) about our responsibility as educators in the Maker Movement in regards to inclusion and equity: who is a maker? who is the maker movement for? Aligns nicely with DML's theme this year. This talk is from the Eyeo Festival.

Participants in #clmooc  might like this MOOC that will introduce you to some of the influences on open courses on an open web -- big influences for clmooc.
 
Please pass along to anyone you think might want to do a MOOC for the first time. Even if you have done several MOOC's this may be the one for you.
Created with Haiku Deck, free presentation software that’s simple, beautiful, and fun.

I'll admit to being overly sentimental, so no surprise that even the trailer for this movie got me misty. But on the other hand... what does it mean when a group of young people do something they see as grand and ambitious and then build a legacy for young people right behind them who can, then, start to see a different future for themselves. 

Opening in theaters soon, this film is and isn't about underwater robots. It's also about Phoenix where one of our Intersections teams is located. Perhaps they can give us more of the scoop.
