Three Great Free Online Events in the Next 30 Hours

By Justin Reich — April 19, 2012 1 min read

There are three great media events coming up in the next 30 hours.

First, at 3pm EST, I’m going to be on WBUR’s Radio Boston talking about social media and education in the wake of the Kony 2012 video. It will be live streamed and archived.

Second, at 4pm EST, my colleague Greg Kulowiec is going to be doing a free webinar called Primary Sources 2.0, about using new media to have students access, organize, annotate, and analyze primary source materials. The Webinar is co-sponsored by MassCUE (our state ISTE affliate) and EdTechTeacher. You can log in at 4pm here.

Finally, my colleagues from the Berkman Center Youth and Media Lab are doing a Webinar in partnership with McCormick Media Matters, where they will be talking about their incredible new research on Youth and Information Quality—in particular looking at how young people develop Internet search and evaluation practices outside of schools. That will start at 3pm EST tomorrow.

So much great learning and sharing!
