An EARCO teachers pre-conference workshop.
As one educator stated: “While we emphasize standardization, the world demands/expects customization, humanization, and personalization.” As we move out of the four-walled design, we must continue to design and build a new architecture that will give
students opportunities to create their own global network. We don’t yet know how to teach self-direction or how to measure, collaboration, creativity, and innovation in the same way we know how to teach long division. The workshop will respond to the following critical learning questions: 1) What elements must we shift in our own methods to take advantage of the global communications revolution and the incredible, transformative options available? 2) How can we design (not just assign) more motivating yet vigorous student work?
