Facilitator: JOELLEN KILLION March 29, 8:30-10:30
This extended plenary provides an opportunity to engage the NESA community in capturing the emerging future. Participants will explore perspectives on school change, innovation and transformational learning. The impact of education in NESA schools will be explored through the eyes of NESA graduates reflecting on:
The residuals of education? What matters most?
What needs to change?
What wants to happen in education?
A panel of speakers -- Cathryn Berger Kaye, Ben Mardell, and Tom Schimmer -- will further explore these themes.
Participants will explore possibilities and challenges as individual schools and the NESA community evolves into the emerging learning landscape.
On Sunday, March 31, Dr Killion will facilitate a two-hour session of planning for application as Day 3 of "Assessing 21st Century Skills: Growing Tomorrow's Citizens - Assessing Seven Critical Competencies". [more information]
