Preparing You and Your Students for Next Generation Learning

NH Science Teachers Association Spring Conference,   Monday, March 12, 2012

NH Science Teachers Association Fall Conference,   Monday, November 5, 2012

Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference, Tuesday, November 27, 2012

NEA New Hampshire Spring Conference, Saturday, April 5, 2014   10:45a-12:15p Room 2303/2305.



Teaching in the 21st Century involves a broader understanding of teaching practices than ever before.  Engaging students in new and innovative ways is a challenge faced by all teachers.  Students expect their learning to be relevant and to be in control of it, for the most part. As New Hampshire schools continue to innovate and move toward competency based teaching and learning, teachers must understand how to update their teaching practices to accommodate the shift in focus from teaching in the 20th Century to learning in the 21st Century.  While there are plenty of initiatives for the improvement of education, they all seem to be focused around six critical attributes that have been used to define 21st Century learning in one way of another.  In this workshop, you will explore these six essential conditions necessary for moving teaching and learning into the next generation.  As you gain a deeper understanding of the conditions for next generation learning, you will also consider and discuss ways in which you can incorporate these conditions into your teaching practices.  This workshop is designed to be discussion based and interactive.  You are encouraged to bring a laptop with wireless connectivity to access online resources, but it is not a requirement for participation.
