Creating a New Culture of Teaching and Learning:


A powerful new culture of empowered teaching and fearless learning is emerging. Access to more timely information and communication tools can empower educators to focus on the individual learning needs of their students. These same tools can lead to more collegiality, build stronger community relationships and empower students to be more self-directed. This workshop presents clear examples of how this new culture has been achieved.
Main points include:
  • Increased Collegiality: Shared Best Practices
  • Increase Student ownership of learning
  • Technology aligned to curriculum
  • Authentic work
  • More rigorous and motivating assignments
  • Classroom to learning community

The Technology? Skills every Student Needs.


The world in which our students will all be working and living will be different from our own. We will examine:
  • What’s happening outside school in the workplace because of information technologies?
  • What skills does every student need to be a productive citizen?
  • What curricula and methodologies best teach those skills?
  • How will schools, classrooms and libraries change as a result?
The presentation looks at pragmatic change strategies that will help assure that all students become “technology and information literate” and looks at real ways schools can implement those changes.
