Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Where will you be when Earth Day starts at Zero Hour - Greenwich Mean Time (also known as 9 p.m Eastern / 6 p.m. Pacific USA) ?

We'll be listening to the 2010 Keynote Earthcast speaker, Jason Czarneki at http://earthbridges.net/live.

Jason Czarneki, professor of environmental law at Vermont Law School, will be keynoting Earthcast 2010, a live, 24 hour webcastathon starting at 0 GMT on Thursday, April 22nd, 2010 (click here for a time zone conversion to your region of the globe). Jason keynoted Earthcast 2009 and will be back to jumpstart Earthcast 2010, this time speaking to the topic of, “Climate Policy and U.S.-China Relations.” The theme of the talk is particularly relevant as Jason is currently living and teaching in Guangzhou, China, north of Hong Kong, on a Fulbright Scholarship. Jason will give a 20-30 minute talk followed by 30 minutes of discussion and questions from the moderators and virtual participants.

That will be a tough act to follow, but we'll do our best! Teachers Teaching Teachers will be the second hour of Earthcast 2010:
The Earthcast 2010 is excited to have the Teachers Teaching Teachers team from Edtechtalk contribute to the project this coming Thursday at 1:00 GMT (9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific in the USA on Wednesday, April 21). Paul Allison, Susan Ettenheim and company will be talking about school gardens.

And it doesn't end there right after Teachers Teaching Teachers, the Gator Radio Experience student broadcasts will take over! Check out the Earthcast 2010 Program Guide and Schedule.

Teachers Teaching Teachers will broadcast over our normal channel as well at http://EdTechTalk.com/live at 9:00pm Eastern / 6:00pm Pacific USA Wednesdays / 01:00 UTC Thursdays World Times.

  • One of the things we will be talking about are school gardens! Paul Allison's students at the East-West School of International Studies, Flushing have been tilling the earth this spring. They've been inspired by their play in Evoke to change the world, one garden at at time. A couple of student-gardeners will be joining us.
  • Susan Ettenheim will also welcome students from the Green Team at her school, Eleanor Roosevelt High School, Manhattan.
  • We've also invited a teacher who is new to Teachers Teaching Teachers, Elizabeth Kee, a teacher from Lower East Side Prep, also in Manhattan. Elizabeth has been teaching Paul Fleischman's Seedfolks to her mainly Chinese and other ELL students. They've been planting the seeds from this book, and are ready to move to a community garden.

  • AND!! We will be joined by Evoke gardeners, Michele Baron from Virginia, and Patricio Buenrostro-Gilhuys from Guadalajara, Mexico -- and more!
What a way to start an EARTH DAY!

Please join us at http://EdTechTalk/live at 9:00pm Eastern / 6:00pm Pacific USA Wednesday / 01:00 UTC Thursday World Times.
