And at the core of this challenge is how well we realize the potentials of today's emerging technologies in our own professional and personal learning practice as educational leaders. Participants will discuss how schools have changed and how they need to change to meet the demands of a modern world and remain relevant in the lives of the students they teach.

Participants will learn valuable lessons for designing and leading global collaborations.
