About Our Local Speaker:
Dr. Juan Gilbert - You’ll have a chance to hear from Dr. Juan Gilbert, IDEaS Professor & Chair of the Human-Centered Computing Division in the School of Computing at Clemson University. Dr. Gilbert directs the Human Centered Computing Lab and will speak about infusing our public education system with various technologies that can revolutionize the classroom to help improve education for students. In the spirit of TED (www.TED.com) our "Idea Worth Spreading" is what if each student was matched with 5 teachers to 1 student? Dr. Gilbert has a technology that is making that scenario possible. Please join us to celebrate the great community we share and the ideas and people that make our home town extraordinary!
