Steve Denbo

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

This morning, Drs. Copeland and McVey joined their colleagues at Washtenaw Community College to listen to Steve Denbo talk about empowering students through technology. It was a rollicking tour of some interesting new applications as well as a few old familiar ones. Even for those of us who live and breathe computers, there were some interesting stops along the way and some good discussions about bringing out the entrepreneur in our students by using such sites as www.kickstarter.com. Steve also reminded us about the challenges and the opportunities of having a positive presence using social media.
