I'm attending the annual College and University Faculty Assembly Conference (an affiliate group of the National Council for the Social Studies) in Washington DC today. I am presenting a research paper "Global Education through Youth Virtual Media Production" at a panel session This paper was also published in the Journal of Research in Curriculum & Instruction earlier this year. unfortunately my session was the last one and there was a strong competing session at the same time so it didn't get as many people.
