UNC CHAT – Collaborations: Humanities, Arts and Technology

The CHAT festival takes place February 16 – 20. Registration for the overall festival, all activities, is $15 for UNC students, but many events including some concerts and talks are free and open to the unregistered public. You’ll want to check out the schedule to see what you can fit in and whether you need to register or not to attend. I encourage you to attend as much as you can and as much as interests you, but I realize that there is a lot going on in your lives besides CHAT and ILS 697.

In lieu of our Wednesday February 17th class, I’m asking you to attend at least one CHAT Festival session and report back to us here on this thread about your experience. Do include references to our viewings so far if they are appropriate.

CHAT will draw together the diverse digital resources of the Triangle area in a series of performances, discussions, exhibitions and workshops February 16-20, 2010, to showcase Collaborations: Humanities, Arts & Technology.

    The 60s were a time of questioning what passed for traditions in education, but there were many times of questioning teaching styles before that. Montessori’s new education project began in 1907 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montessori_method She died in 1952; many of her ideas were already put into practice before then.
