Actionable Innovations Community Notes: Unrulr, ISTE, and More
February 10, 2023
Our hearts this week are with our community members in Syria and Turkey. There are approximately 125 people from these two countries in our primary community located at actionableinnovations.global. Here is a lesson plan about the earthquake disaster from the New York Times, and we encourage you to support various charities working in the region. Here is some advice on donating wisely, a helpful list of charities to consider, and an article about international aid efforts. Our friends at Goodable have a fantastic Twitter thread worth perusing; it documents some heroes in this terrible situation.
Please join us Friday, February 21st, for a rescheduled Actionable Innovations Conversation with Aaron Schorn of Unrulr. Unruler is an educational technology tool for documenting learning. We’re excited to chat with Aaron Schorn and learn more about his fascinating background in education. On March 17th, our guest will be Bob Greenberg of the Brainwaves Video Anthology; details to come.
We are also thrilled to announce that we are hosting the Global Collaborator Meetup at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in June. This event will be similar to the event formerly known as Global Education Day and will feature ignite talks, networking activities, and global education resources. More details are forthcoming, but if you represent an organization that would like to support the meetup, please reach out.

The CELEB center is a one-of-a-kind program unparalleled at any other undergraduate school. Housed off-campus in the heart of Beloit’s revitalized downtown district, it is an 18,000+ square feet space dedicated to student ventures in music, art, digital media, prototyping, and traditional start-ups. Within CELEB, there is an entrepreneurship lab, public art gallery, recording studio, maker lab, philanthropic foundation, and market research firm. Most of the programs associated with CELEB are student-run. Learn about how Beloit College is helping students develop practical, real-world skills within the context of a liberal arts institution!
