This was an invitation to read, reflect, pause and come together in community.

On March 30, the Community Education Department at Arapahoe Community College hosted a book discussion on Thomas Friedman’s latest book titled Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations. Here’s a quote from the book jacket that drew me in to read more. “We all sense it—something big is going on. You feel it in your workplace. You feel it when you talk to your kids. You can’t miss it when you read the newspapers or watch the news. Our lives are being transformed in so many realms all at once—and it is dizzying.”

“When you press the pause button on a machine, it stops. But when you press the pause button on human beings they start.” -Dov Seidman

Come and get your educational theory and theorist love!


Noon to 1 pm
We will be doing an encore presentation from Educause on Coding, Gaming, IoT, and Wearables: New Student Success Technologies, or Chocolate-Covered Broccoli?

Even though Extreme found the results of audience poll discouraging – we will tell you why you shouldn’t be!

Join us for a spirited discussion of four current technologies. Share your perspective on whether educationally these technologies are like pouring chocolate over broccoli or if they can improve student outcomes by strategically leveraging them. Come caffeinated and opinionated, and be ready to dive in and share with peers and colleagues.
