Twelve years into the millennium, educators are still wrestling to define 21st century learning and teaching. What do all these buzzwords mean and what are the implications for how we teach and students learn? How can teachers make practical changes in their classrooms while still addressing state and national standards? In this keynote, Lucy will discuss educational trends and initiatives, giving participants a detailed overview of best practices. Attendees will gain an understanding of how technology can be used to support teaching and learning and will be inspired to encourage their respective institutions to evolve in this era of education reform. Current educational buzzwords will be demystified, and attendees will leave with a plethora of resources to support further exploration and leadership efforts.
