**Connected Learning Communities: Learning and Leading in a Digital Age**

Here, now -- a revolution in technology has transformed the way we can find each other, interact and collaborate to create knowledge
as connected learners, to develop the social fabric, capacity and connectedness found in communities of
practice and learning networks. Join Sheryl in this interactive presentation as she explores the question- What should professional development look like in the 21st Century?

**Keynote Address: Schooling for the 21st Century: Unleashing 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.


**The Dimensions of Change within Schools in the 21st Century**

Today's changing world challenges us to re-envision what we do in our schools and classrooms or risk a growing irrelevance in our students' lives.
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
