This is a copy of a posting from Dr. Maria Droujkova from the Twittermoms Ning:

This Wednesday night, July 8th, 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern, there will be an online event consisting of a brief interview with me (Dr. Maria Droujkova), an active exchange of ideas, brainstorming, and making collaboration plans. The topic is “Math 2.0” – that is, mathematics as it relates to social media and new web technologies. Mark your calendars.

Not only is mathematics currently lagging in social spaces, the lag is increasing with time. Kids from the “digital native” generation are native to spaces where specialists still broadcast math from ivory towers, and kids aren’t welcome to contribute content. Most pedagogically innovative math computer games are at least fifteen years old. Come discuss these and other trends, mostly alarming but occasionally hopeful, and meet interesting people ready to take action together.

Steve Hargadon, the founder of Classroom 2.0, Future of Education and LearnCentral will lead the interview. It will take place in an Elluminate webinar room you can access at http://tinyurl.com/futureofed If you have never used Elluminate before, come earlier to download the client and set it up. It will be open half an hour ahead of time. More detailed information about the event will be uploaded to the Future of Education sitehttp://www.futureofeducation.com by Tuesday, July 7th.
