Saturday July 29 at 8 am ET

Session focuses on creating rapid responses to national and global events. How do you address current events and create and curate new content in the age of Fake New, Alts Facts, Hacking, Global Communication and a Connected World? We'll look at social media, the participatory culture and how even games can help students understand global events and perspectives.
