I've been facilitating the same workshop around the world for the last year, tightening it down, and refining it to the point where I'm very excited to offer it to a public crowd of math teachers. I'd like to bring 75 of you into a room and leave six hours later with a stronger understanding of perplexing curriculum design and mathematical storytelling. We'll determine where digital photos and videos fit into that design and we'll develop the technological skills for designing curricula with any kind of media.
If you'd like to learn more, check out the session website.
If you'd like to sign up, head over to the Eventbrite page. I'm limiting registration to 75 people.
What: The Perplexity Session
Where: The Mountain View Hilton
When: 8:30 – 3:30. September 10, 2011.
Bagels, coffee, and lunch are included, as is a huge pile of digital curricula and resources I haven't found time to post here. If you'll need a room for the night, I have a block room rate from the Hilton. Call them up and use the code "DYI."
The other extremely important thing about this session is that you'll have to sign this video release. I have contracted a local video production company to film our work together. This whole workshop is operating at net zero profit so I can get it down on film for wider distribution.
Let's do this! I'm excited to work with you guys.

As someone who was fortunate enough to see one of the early incarnations of this workshop, I can tell you that it is incredibly valuable professional learning. Dan is a skilled facilitator, and more importantly a great teacher. I highly recommend it. I love that it is being filmed for posterity.
