We are very excited to announce registration is now open for Islands Of Excellence.

Islands of Excellence has been and continues to be a statement of community, conversation and collaboration. From the Hack Jam in July and all the events that we have been a part of planning and attending since, Islands Of Excellence is rooted in community-based learning.

We hope you will join us to be a part of the learning experience on November 16 and 17th. Participation for the conference is limited to 40 spaces and 75 spaces for Pecha Kucha.

We are heading to NYC for #140edu! #140edu is exploring “The State of Education NOW”, it is about connecting, getting inspired and sharing voices. How cool is that!

We met Jeff Pulver at a meetup in Toronto for #140confONT in May and he invited us to come down to NYC as his guests to the conference and to go to the speakers dinner, we sealed the deal with a legendary Jeff Pulver hug.

New York is one of my favourite cities. Its bright lights, dazzling energy and constant buzz are exactly why I think #140edu is the place for us to officially launch Make Waves into the world. We have been connecting at home and we are ready for the BIG stage. If you are at #140edu, please come say hello to us and we will happily give you one of our spanking new bright green business cards and if you aren’t at #140edu, feel free to follow the conversation on twitter. I am sure there is going to be something for everyone and all kinds of inspiration for Islands of Excellence.

Make Waves!
