Will Richardson presents: 'Reimagining Classrooms for the Modern World: The Opportunities for Learners in the Networked Era'.
The age of continuous, ubiquitous learning is upon us, and the implications for schools and teachers are enormous. Knowledge and information are no longer siloed in a place-based curriculum. Expert teachers who share our passions are now everywhere and increasingly easy to access. And instead of tests and grades and diplomas to show our "expertise," mastery is transparent and shared through online portfolios of ideas and creations that are easily found through a Google search.
How do we prepare our students for this new world where being a deep and powerful learner is now way more valuable than being learned and book smart? That's the question we'll explore in this demanding yet inspiring two day workshop on Reimagining Classrooms for the Modern World. It's a highly interactive and hands-on experience that will help you reexamine your personal and professional practice. We'll challenge traditional narratives of classrooms and create new stories that are founded in old truths about learning and the new realities of change. We'll build our own capacity to learn using technology, and we'll consider new ways of thinking about teaching, about literacy, and about flourishing in a world of "perpetual beta." And more.
The opportunities for learners in this moment are awesome, and now is the time for us to create the conditions in our classrooms where those opportunities can be fully realized by our students. These two days will give you a new perspective on your work, and they will help you develop your students into the passionate, amazing learners they now need to be. Join us!
Registration fee includes 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, and 2 coffee breaks.
