ELI and DE Spring Leadership Series: Consumers to Creators
Thursday, March 20, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Building off of the success of the recent Executive Leadership Institute and Discovery Education Common Core Academy we are proud to bring you the next offering in our leadership series: Consumers to Creators: Curating and Creating Digital Content in the Classroom.
Not only do today’s students want to be engaged through technology, media, and conversations at the same time, they also want to instantly share their own content, ideas, and creativity with their peers and the world. Our students have become producers and publishers of content. How do educators teach to someone who is technically proficient, and social media-minded? How can school leaders foster an environment of content creation? During this session we’ll explore tools educators can use with their students and recommendations of things that school leaders and their teams should be looking for and/or modeling with their staff and peers.
All sessions will be hands-on. Bring your Laptop!
