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.

Engaging Staff & Students- Using Web 2.0 Tools for Global Collaboration
How do we promote the knowledge, skills and sense of urgency for 21st Century teaching and learning among all teachers in our schools? As the physical and virtual worlds converge to become the 'real world' of teaching and learning, virtual exchanges, online mentoring and other Web-based environments will play increasingly important roles in educational reform. The "new" Web affords us an amazing opportunity to pursue our passions within online communities of like-minded learners from around the globe. Participants will learn valuable lessons for designing and leading global collaborations.
