Donlevy, Jim, International Journal of Instructional Media


INTRODUCTION

The second annual Celebration of Teaching and Learning will be held in New York City March 23-24, 2007(www.thirteen.org). Sponsored by Thirteen/WNET and WLIW21, the public broadcasting stations of the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut tri-state area, the event is being labeled, "A World's Fair for Educators." This year's Celebration addresses the theme of Science and Global Awareness in recognition of scientific achievement (the 50th anniversary of the launch of Sputnik) and the widely experienced effects of globalization.

The Celebration will offer presentations and workshops that demonstrate effective teaching of science from the perspective of global awareness and provide many concrete examples for teachers to integrate into their classroom practice. Award-winning science programs from Thirteen will highlight conference topics and offer teachers rich opportunities for further examination of subject matter.

CONFERENCE SPEAKERS AND EXHIBITORS

Former United States Vice-President, Al Gore, will be a featured speaker. His work on understanding and addressing climate change (An Inconvenient Truth) will be the subject of his presentation and is sure to draw great interest from conference attendees. Other featured speakers include astrophysicist, Dr. Neil degrasse Tyson, host of NOVA scienceNow and Dr. Mel Levine, Co-Founder and Co-Chair, All Kinds of Minds.

Special presenters also include Dale Hubert, Robin Bell, Rodger Bybee, Milton Chen, Lucille Davy, Keith Devlin, Daljit Dhaliwal, Brian Greene, Mae Jemison, Mike Purdy and Bernie Trilling. In addition, Tim Russert of "Meet the Press" will host a Town Meeting.
