“From Astronauts to Zimbabwe – the A to Z of Global collaboration”
Presenter: Steve Sherman
We are in for a real treat with this Classroom 2.0 LIVE presentation on February 18, 2017 by our special guest, Steve Sherman. Steve is not only an inspired, energetic, passionate global educator but he has an incredible sense of humor. He has many stories and experiences to share about his world travels "without the traveling" through the hundreds of activities he has been involved in with students through the use of technology.
Here's a taste of his humor in his profile statement which is anything but typical (read carefully).
Steve Sherman is the Chief Imagination Officer of an Educational NGO in Capetown, South Africa called Living Maths. It is a mathematics, problem-solving and science enrichment program. He teaches approximately 4500 students weekly in schools around Cape Town and now recently, the world. He is passionate about sharing knowledge and empowering young people. He is also a multi-award purchasing educator and was voted most adorable educational innovator by his unbiased mother. He feels that it is his destiny to spread the joy of problem-solving and creative thinking to anyone who is willing to listen and even to those who are not. He knows Karate, Ju-jitsu and 2 other Japanese words. Steve is an Olympic medallist for the short jump and an accomplished Yo-yo winder.
