This summer Vision Ed. will be hosting the 14th annual Stonington Retreat in New York City, a four-day intensive workshop aimed at empowering teachers, parents, and administrators to effectively integrate creative technologies into their classrooms and after-school programs. With hands-on workshops in Robotics, Computer Animation, Game Design, Digital Video and Blogging, participants will walk away with the resources needed to start or continue a technology program at their school or organization. For over a decade, Stonington has provided a space for educators from all over the world to engage in intensive training and high-level discussion about the future of education and technology. Join us this year and see what it's all about!
The retreat will take place this summer July 8th-11th, 2008 at New York University's Kimmel Center in lower Manhattan.
