KEYNOTE: Today’s Modern Learning Environment: more than a new coat of paint
Today’s kids have one foot in yesterday’s values and one foot in tomorrow’s realities. Our responsibility as community leaders is NOT to find a secure balance across that chasm, but to create opportunities for them to take a smart leap into tomorrow with yesterday’s values ingrained! But it’s no small task to make that shift. What are your schools doing differently today to get students ready for their tomorrow? Are you making real changes or are you just repainting the same old house a different color? This high-energy keynote highlights various classrooms and instructional practices that are winning in schools across Kansas, right now. Kids aren’t just compliantly attending classes in these schools; they’re clamoring for more. Come learn the gamut of possibilities and how you can lead your community into tomorrow.
