The Atlantic to Hold Technology in Education Conference Next Month

The Atlantic, parent of the magazine The Atlantic Monthly, is going to be holding a 1 day conference in DC on 22 May. The focus of the conference will be Technology in Education, and they've already lined up speakers from a number of universities as well as PBS, AMD, and more. The agenda for the conference has not been posted yet, but I am hoping it will cover a broader range of topics than last year.

This is their second annual conference, and the one I attended last year didn't quite match up with the title. It would have been better to have called it a Games in Education conference, not tech, because the focus truly was that narrow.

While I have no problem with games as educational tools, I don't want to write about them. I was also disappointed with last year's conference because I learned almost nothing about the technology used in education. That was a waste of both time and money.

But I have registered for the upcoming conference, just in case it is worth attending. You can find out more here.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
