Educating the Modern Learner
2015-2016 Innovation in Education Workshops
Educating the Modern Learner We live in a moment of unprecedented change, and our conceptions of schooling and education are being challenged in fundamental ways. Educational leaders around the globe are grappling with unfamiliar new contexts for learning, which demand new ways of thinking and leading around an increasingly uncertain future. EML Publisher Will Richardson will unpack some of these new contexts, and articulate a mission that is focused on helping educators become not just modern learners, but modern leaders as well, leaders who are better informed and make better decisions for the modern students in their charge.

Student Voice and Choice
Students should be central to any educational reform agenda. Student voice shows how you can achieve this with the Listen, Learn, and lead approach: ask young people their thoughts and truly listen, learn from what students say, and utilize what you learn to be an effective leader of change. Dr. Quaglia is co-author of Student Voice: The Instrument of change. http://www.qisa.org/

The Classroom of the Future: And Your Future Starts
Today for the most part, the use of technologies in schools has done little to change schools and learning. Yet the affordances of these tools and resources have great potential. How are our best teachers taking full advantage? Dean Shareski, classroom teacher, technology consultant, and Community Manager for Discovery Education Canada will speak on fundamental concepts and dispositions teachers will need in order to achieve the level of engagement and empowerment we desire for our students.
