Creating the Classrooms We Need
In the age of information surplus, our schools hold immense potential for authentic and experience-based learning. We are teaching and learning in an educational landscape where the students no longer have to come to school to 'get' the information. Never have educators had such opportunities to think creatively about their practice. Never has it been so incumbent upon us to provide students with innovative and dynamic learning. This session will provide practical classroom examples of activities and assessments as well as push audience thinking on what it means to teach and learn in modern schools.

What does a resilient student do/habits of practice? How does this look for the individual student, teacher, school, district?
