Come join the MYD Education Committee at their next meeting on Monday, April 1st. The meeting will begin at 7 pm in the upstairs area of Cosi, at 498 Seventh Ave. There will be a special presentation by Lisa Nielsen, Director of Digital Literacy and Citizenship for the NYC Department of Education. Neilsen also writes the blog The Innovative Educator.
The theme of the presentation is “More/ Less”, focusing on what could be added or removed in schools and the education system to make improvements. Following the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a discussion of these ideas, and also develop the committee’s 2013 platform.
Also speaking at Monday’s meeting is Garrett Richardson, a Program Manager at iMentor, a not-for-profit focused on youth mentoring. Attendees will get a chance to hear about the program and ways to get involved.
