SETDA, FOSI, SC11: Learning Registry, Online Safety, Supercomputing

I am in conference mode.

First was the SETDA 2011 Leadership Summit, Nov. 6-9, at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center On the Potomac in National Harbor, Maryland. U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, along with Aneesh Chopra, U.S. Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Laura Junor, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Readiness, and Richard Culatta, Education Fellow, Office of U.S. Senator Patty Murray, Washington, and Steve Midgley, Deputy Director, Office of Educational Technology, U.S. Department of Education, announced the launch (Nov. 7) of The Learning Registry. “The Learning Registry is a new approach to capturing, sharing, and analyzing learning resource data to broaden the usefulness of digital content to benefit educators and learners” (Learning Registry).

The next conference was at FOSI.org: “The nature of evolving technology sees the emergence of new trends and behavior among young people and new efforts by government and industry to combat harmful behaviors. FOSI provides periodic information to keep you informed about these issues.” Here are some featured publications:

I am currently at the Supercomputing Conference (SC11)  in Seattle, Nov. 12-18: “Connecting Communities through HPC [High Performance Computing]. To build a larger, more diverse, knowledgeable and skilled community, SC11 is focusing on innovating HPC applications and advancing scientific discovery for the local, regional, national and global society.”

I will share more about these in an upcoming article.
