One reason why Constructing Modern Knowledge is gaining a reputation for being the premiere learning event for educators is the opportunity to work with world-class experts and an amazing faculty. Award-winning filmmaker and digital story-telling genius, Casey Neistat is one of the spectacular guest speakers participating in  CMK 2012.

Casey creates several super creative short films per week using consumer-level cameras and iMovie (samples). His films, entertain, inform, inspire and mobilize.

Today, Casey published a film he made documenting this week’s police raid on Occupy Wall Street. The film is arresting (pun intended), disturbing and deeply moving. Despite its simplicity, the film’s climax will take your breath away. In fact, Casey’s film may document this moment in history the way that The Execution Of Nguyễn Văn Lém mobilized Americans against the War in Vietnam or the photos from the Edmund Pettus Bridge led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act.

Don’t you deserve four days of creative and intellectual stimulation this summer?

On October 5, 2011, I had the privilege of addressing leading education policy-makers and educators in Seoul, South Korea as a guest of the Korea Education Research & Information Service.

I presented in a “classroom of the future” complete with horrific card readers with True/False-type buttons (response systems) affixed to wooden desks. Given the orthodoxy associated with the staid nature of the Korean education system, I decided to go all-in and offer learner-centered progressive alternatives.

I wish they had included the Q&A period following my talk. I hope to get a copy in the future and will share it if I do.

I recently enjoyed the privilege of being the opening keynote speaker at the annual ITEC Conference in Des Moines, Iowa. The topic of the keynote address was, “Ten Things to Do with a Laptop: Learning and Powerful Ideas.” It is one my most popular keynote addresses.

Despite the video quality, this is one of my best recorded presentations in recent years.
