I am serving my Fulbright assignment in Azerbaijan this Fall.My son, 12 year old, and I have been in Baki since September.

I have met so many scholars who has shared amazing resources with me.  My colleague, Nailye Sadikhova, who is the professor of Philology at Azerbaijan State Pedagogical University shared with me her wisdom this morning.

I have learned that Afred Nobel made his fortune in Baku. Today, Nobel price money today originated from Baku Oil.

City is not only rich in oil/gas (neft) but it is rich with culture. I am looking forward to sharing my stories.

Peace, Melda

The second annual Student Technology Conference, a free one-day online event bringing together students, educators and innovators from around the world, will be heldSaturday, January 30, 2016 from 9 Am to 9 Pm EST. We invite all to attend!

The Student Technology Conference provides an international forum for the presentation, discussion and sharing of educational technology in schools and other academic settings. This conference, by students in grades 6-12 as well as colleges and universities and for all, is committed to:

  • Fostering a better understanding of how students use technology in education and to engage students, teachers and administrators in a conversation about technology.
  • Assisting teachers and administrators in understanding how students use technology both in and out of the classroom.
  • Strengthening the relationship between students, teachers and administrators about technology in the curriculum.

Last year’s conference featured more than twenty general sessions and four keynote addresses from all over the world with over 500 participants!
