The University of Cincinnati and Apple are hosting Vision 2020 the first week of August. The theme for the event is "Digital Ubiquity & University Transformation".
The conference will provide the opportunity for institutional leaders and faculty from around the country to share ideas and best practices about digital ubiquity in higher education. For anyone interested in integrating notebooks, iPhones or iPod touch devices into their campus environment, this is the conference to attend.
Featured speakers include former Maine Governor Angus King, the University of Cincinnati President Nancy Zimpher, dean and CIO leadership panels, NMC CEO Larry Johnson and KnowledgeWorks CEO Chad Wick addressing "Emerging Technology Trends: Shaping the Future of HIgher Education", and over 25 other college and university presentations. University and college are encouraged to bring teams of 3 or more.
The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is teaming up with Apple, to provide college students across the United States with the opportunity to share how they define freedom. Teams of college students can create and submit a short video (3 minutes or less) expressing the qualities, importance, and impact of freedom in their lives, today.
Through their submissions, students will connect with people around the world to share their ideas about Freedom and become facilitators in a very important, global dialogue concerning some of society’s most critical issues. Creating Freedom Awareness—at a time when we need it most—is, perhaps, the 21st Century’s greatest challenge.
So what do you want to do with your life?
The Roadtrip Nation (RTN) Movement was born from this question, and the idea that hitting the road to meet with inspirational leaders from all walks of life could help people discover their own paths in life. Started by a group of recent college grads whose life-changing roadtrip set this all in motion, Roadtrip Nation has evolved into a National PBS Series, student roadtrip movement on over 400 colleges, three books and a growing online network at roadtripnation.com. Whatever the medium, our goal is to help people discover their own roads in life based on individuality, passion and exploration.
