The Past, Present &
Future: Which are we preparing our students for?
We are in a state of
disruption. The digital world is meeting our analog minds and the future
of learning hangs in the balance. The role of the technology amplifies what's
both good and bad about our modern culture: People being sucked into their
phones rather than having a face to face conversation; The ability to get
immediate access to information at the touch of our fingertips; Tweeting what
we had for lunch; Spending hours and hours watching mindless YouTube videos
trying to figure out what the fox says. We are all a part of this societal
shift of living in this digital age, but what are we doing to harness this in
our schools? This presentation will highlight where we have been, where
we are today and where will can possibly go with the future of learning both in
and out of our schools.
