Putting the "Magic" in Education


Thinkfinity Education Speaker Series

November 2011 – Magic Johnson


Verizon Thinkfinity is proud to announce the Thinkfinity Education Speaker Series – bringing the most interesting voices in education to you.

The video series continues in early November, with NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson.  His foundation, Magic Johnson Foundation, strives to educate ethnically diverse communities with innovative technology, most notably through Community Empowerment Centers.

Magic Johnson’s video interview will feature his career off the court as a philanthropist, entrepreneur, and advocate for education.  His talents on the court, passion for philanthropy, and commitment to education make Magic a role-model to individuals of all ages.

Magic Johnson can be heard live through Thinkfinity’s online community, and his interview will be archived for later use.  To view these video interviews, a login to the Thinkfinity Community is required, but registration is free.

Thinkfinity Community brought to you by Verizon Thinkfinity, connects thousands of educators in providing resources for the classroom, social networking tools, and newsfeeds on the latest educational news.  For more information about the Education Speaker Series and events offered by Thinkfinity, visit Verizon Thinkfinity and Thinkfinity Community.
