Living and Learning in a Connected Learning Community

Learning is now an anytime, anywhere, anyone experience, and for educators to fully understand the implications of an interconnected, networked world for their students, we must begin to see ourselves as a part of a global community of learners. We'll look at ways that schools from around the world are making these shifts, and discuss in detail the steps to creating successful professional online learning communities at your school.

Schooling for the 21st Century- Unleasing Student Passion

A passionate student is a learning student. As the people of the world are becoming increasingly connected, the nature, use, ownership, and purpose of knowledge are changing in profound ways. Our goal as educators is to leverage these connections and changes as powerful means to improve teaching and learning in our schools. Come join in a discussion of why we should all have a sense of urgency for shifting classroom practice toward more engaging approaches that unleash the passion that lies within each student.
