You too can join this event even though you aren't in my class. It started as a simple guest speaking event but it's such a great topic and she chose to use the almost globally accessible tool, Google Hangout, and it's become so much more!
Complicated Conversations in the Post-9/11 Era's first Live Broadcast through Hangout On Air by Google with NMSU's Dr. Julia Parra and her EDLT 581(Spring 2015) students will be on March 31, 2015 from the University of Missouri Memorial Student Union inside the Arvarh E. Strickland Room (S203-EAS). Educators are constantly exploring the most effective means how to connect and engage students as well as the global community in the 21st century. Connecting with the Mizzou community and teaming up with Dr. Parra and her class EDLT 581, Emerging Technology Tools and Techniques is a great way to demonstrate how people and technology can move forward together as well as engage members of different communities in hard conversations about the most pressing issues the world is facing today. I know it’s a complicated conversation, but let’s do it anyway. Also, I will share the details of the upcoming official launch from 13,000 ft. during a tandem skydive with Steve Anderson at Skydive Flying V Ranch in Williamsburg, MO.

Gave me goosebumps reading the synopsis. It is truly beyond important to understand the causes and the mindset of human beings that set on the path of being a - Bully. This is a brave undertaking and I support these filmmakers taking this journey. Please join me.
