Le cour de babel (The School of Babel) is a beautiful documentary about a group of newly arrived refugees to a secondary school in Paris. The students are Irish, Serbian, Brazilian, Tunisian, Chinese, and Senegalese. During a year, Julie Bertuccelli filmed the exchanges, conflicts, and joys of this group of students aged between 11 and 15 years old who all attend the same class to learn French. In this small theater of the world, the innocence, energy, and contradictions of these adolescents are expressed. 

Driven by the same desire to change their lives, these students challenge many established ideas about youth and integration and give us hope for the future.

Education Technology Graduate Program

Texas State University is proud to sponsor the annual EdTech Conference on April 22, 2017. 

The theme of this year's conference is Confer, Collaborate, Change (C3). The goal of the conference is to empower educators to make positive, innovative changes in their teaching practices by having meaningful conversations and building strong, collaborative professional relationships. Along those lines, the conference is veering away from traditional "sit and get" model of professional development and implementing more collaborative, hands-on and exploratory learning sessions. 

The conference will include makerspace activities, sessions related to gaming and augmented reality, and an "unconference" strand which will incorporate topics driven by interests and suggestions of session participants. 

Attendees will receive four hours of PD credit. 

Breakfast, coffee, and door prices will be included.
