Adult professionals don’t use textbooks or take tests daily, and are using and less and less paper to do their work. Why should our children learn in a wholly different environment when preparing for the professional world? Learn why and how one classroom teacher cut out textbooks, tests, and paper to transform her students’ learning experiences every day. Then experience it for yourself by doing a “walk-thru” of a lesson during the session. You’ll be moving, talking, creating, and sharing with other participants. Be sure to bring a device so that you can engage in the in-person and online collaboration that will occur during the session. You’ll find out how this new way of learning and teaching can make the classroom more of a community and can reignite students’ and teachers’ passion for learning.
