Joining Creative Conversations (JCC) on Education: Panel moderated by Cheryl Strauss Einhorn
Is technology helping or hurting our children’s literacy? We’re all hooked on our electronic and media devices today, and our kids even more so. Should learning change to become more visual as well to better reflect society? Come for a current events discussion of visual vs. traditional methods of literacy as well as how new technologies can be used to advance education.
Steve Apkon - social entrepreneur and founder of the Jacob Burns Film Center who recently wrote a book about visual literacy entitled The Age of The Image; Dan Benton - CEO of technology money management firm Andor Capital Management, Board Member of both Colgate University and on-line educator Khan Academy; Dr. Thomas Hagerman – Superintendent of Scarsdale School District; Cheryl Strauss Einhorn - Journalist, media consultant, and adjunct professor at Columbia University.
