If you click on this link you can register and will automatically land on our island. Please pass this along to any and all that would be interested in attending. Of course it is free, and you will have the ability to network and to listen to some very interesting topics around educational learning in virtual spaces. Please see the details below. I hope to see you all there!!!!

We’ve added another speaker to the agenda for the third installation of the ThinkBalm Innovation Community’s “un-lecture” event series. This series is designed for members to share things they are working on, learn about exciting projects others are up to, and build valuable connections. All presentations, demos, and tours are on topics related to using the Immersive Internet at work. Each presentation is 10 minutes long or shorter.
