KEYNOTE: MICHAEL SOSKIL
CONNECTED CLASSROOMS AND THE NEW WORLD OF LEARNING
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.
