Transforming Education: Engaging Students with Technology

I will be on the panel of Transforming Education: Engaging Students with Technology. I will be discussing “Development of Transportation Planning Model Software for Classroom Instruction”, which describes the ADAM (Agent-based Demand and Assignment Model) (JAVA Applet) which I developed with graduate students Shanjiang Zhu and Feng Xie, extending research done with Lei Zhang.
This seminar will be held Wednesday, May 3, 2006, 12:00 p.m.–1:30 p.m., 402 Walter Library, East Bank, Twin Cities campus.


I will be attending the MeshForum conference in San Francisco May 7th and 8th.
This will be an interesting combination of random people from social networking, futurists, and Web 2.0, and me, apparently representing physical networks. I will be talking about the evolution of transportation networks. The conference also has a wiki. The conference is organized by Shannon Clark of JigZaw.
I saw a reference on a social networks message board, which is how I found out about it, and then saw that Professor Anna Nagurney carried the flag for transportation networks last year. Her talk is available at IT Conversations.
