Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Nov. 10: Moving into The Next Generation in Education

A discussion of how technology can reshape adult education by three educators from Ivy Tech and Phoenix University

When: Thursday, November 10 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Where: Ivy Tech Community College Lawrence Campus 9301 E. 59th St.

With the click of a mouse, one can learn in a classroom or library, at home, or on a trip around the world. Attend a workshop that explores how new Inrnet resources and technology can create collaboration, how information is mobile and readily available through ebooks, and how to become knowledge workers in a global village. Explore ways technology accommodates our abilities to learn in different ways and assists in the development of lifelong learners. Next generation education allows for inclusion of a diverse group of individuals locally, nationally, and internationally. Unlike education in the early 20th century which took place in classrooms anyone with access to the Internet can be a lifelong learner. Discussion will focus on how these new tools are reshaping our views of what it means to be educated and how they will affect our culture, especially now that formal learning can occur easily across traditional boundaries and in multiple locations.

Free. Questions? Call or 558-3969 or e-mail Linda.edington@phoenix.edu.
