The picture below shows Learning Times founder Jonathan Finklestein,surrounded by Webheads Graham Stanley, Dafne Gonzalez, Ronaldo Lima, Teresa Almeida d’Eca, Carla Arena, Rita Zeinstejer, Aiden Yeh, and Vance Stevens in New York City in 2008.
13:00 GMT – Hope Kandel Gershik http://www.learningtimes.com/who-we-are/the-team/#hope discussed with us her role at Learning Times, about the different focuses of http://www.learningtimes.com,http://learningtimes.org/, and http://learningtimes.net, how Learning Times funds itself, but in particular, how it feels it justifies its long-standing grants to educators, notably through providing Webheads (http://webheads.info) and EVO (Electronic Village Online, http://evosessions.pbworks.com) with one of their most valuable assets, full use of an Elluminate presentation room plus invaluable support during three Webheads in Action Online Convergence events (http://wiaoc.org). She shared with us her motivation (along with that of John Walber, Jonathan Finkelstein, and the rest of the Learning Times team) for providing these grants to hundreds of highly appreciative educators, and she told us more about how Learning Times was formed and the scope of its ventures and communities. This event is part of the 2011 EVO multiliteracies sesson, and took place in Elluminate http://tinyurl.com/y3eh (of course 😉
