Closing Keynote to the Specialist Schools Trust National Conference

Friday, November 21, 2003, Birmingham, England

Alan November is recognized internationally as a leader in education technology.

Bob Pearlman is the Director of Strategic Planning for the New Technology Foundation

Alan November and Bob Pearlman together developed the Closing Keynote for the 2003 National Conference of the Specialist Schools Trust, which comprises 1400 secondary schools in England. Unfortunately, Alan had a medical emergency and had to fly home, so Bob presented the recommendations that Alan and he had co-developed.

Note: Alan had successful eye surgery. He is OK and back in the field in the U.S. and internationally.
