Presentation Description

We are living in an extraordinary time in education. We have access to more tools than ever before to empower our students to explore their passions, create new content, crowdsource ideas with global classrooms, and tackle real-world problems through a global lens. How do we collaborate within and beyond our walls to offer students authentic experiences to contribute to our world? What can we do as educators to empower our students to take ownership of their learning? How can we harness the power of the digital tools we have to amplify each student’s voice? Let’s explore these wonderings together. Our time together will feature many examples of individual, group, grade level, and school projects that weave together many areas of the curriculum. In addition to exploring these ideas, we will spend time looking at the power of social media and online communities to show our work and amplify voice.
