TEDxKitchenerED
Andrew Bieronski
TEDxKitchenerED is lead by Andrew Bieronski. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx - where x means an independently organized TED event. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The TED conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, like ours, are self-organized.

From the blog: My name is Melissa Lavoie. I’m from South Porcupine, Ontario (yep). I am currently a GIS-Education Specialist, but before starting this new adventure, I was employed by the Northeastern Catholic DSB for ten years. [snip] Currently, I am a graduate student at UBC in the MEd, Educational Technology program and have had the opportunity to speak at two international conferences as part of my education. I am also founder of the Walk With Us © project, partnered with Google Earth Outreach, and VP of the Board of Directors at the digital Human Library founded by Leigh Cassell of AMDSB. While work and school take up much of my time these days, I enjoy playing volleyball, running, trying new recipes when inspiration strikes and hoping for the best, supporting local businesses and adding them to Google Maps, cultivating my PLN on social media, and watching the sun set in my backyard.

One of my highlights from attending the OMEA Interlude 2017 conference, was hearing the Six String Nation presentation by Jowi Taylor – wow, what an amazing story. Jowi is an award winning writer, broadcaster, creator of the Six String Nation project, recipient of Canada’s Meritorious Service Medal. I was thrilled to meet Jowi in person at the conference, and honoured to host him at our home to record this podcast about the Six String Nation project concept, journey and future plans.
From blog: If you are a data scientist, a software developer, or in the social and human sciences with interest in digital humanities (and I will add education), then you’re no stranger to the ongoing discussions on how algorithms embed and perpetuate human biases. Ethical considerations and critical engagement are urgently needed.

Since the Facebook privacy scandal news broke, I have been collecting articles from a variety of sources and writers representing different perspectives. As summer draws to a close, and things are somewhat quieter on this front, I decided to share my list of articles. This list is not intended to be a complete listing of…
