Resultado de imagem para National Geographic learning

I’m very excited to announce that there will be a second edition of the National Geographic Learning Conference on July 25 at the Gran Marquise Hotel in Fortaleza. The event will feature two speakers: Katherine Stannett, author of the Nat Geo Learning Series Impact, and André Hedlund (me!).

I made a special short video with bits of my talk to get you interested and, perhaps, engaged in asking questions. You can find my video here:
