LISTEMELA Annual Conference



As our world and our workplaces become more globally connected, our schools must adapt. In this inspiring keynote, we will examine incredible examples of children using global connections to change their world for the better, and explore how our schools can remain relevant by providing opportunities for student to learn with others from different locations, different backgrounds, and different cultures. Those in attendance will learn how free tools make it easy to bring the world into classrooms, engage students, and increase learning outcomes.

Bio: Michael Soskil, the 2017-2018 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year, is determined to make learning meaningful for every child and to empower students and teachers as positive change agents in their communities. As an elementary STEM teacher he has inspired students to find solutions to problems in their local and global communities. As a speaker and professional learning facilitator he has helped educators around the world create opportunities for students to use learning to impact their world. For his innovative work, Michael was named one of the top-10 teachers in the world and a finalist for the Global Teacher Prize by Dr. Stephen Hawking in 2016. He also is a recipient of the US Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching in 2012. The book that Michael co-authored, Teaching in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, has been translated into multiple languages and heralded by leaders in education, business, and government as "an authoritative guide to teaching practice over the next three decades."
