Are there people you would like to invite into your living room for a fireside chat? My first choice would be Alan November, one of those presenters who has an earthy, innovative view of the roles for teachers and learners.
I attended a presentation by Alan November several years ago and his innovative ideas continue to validate my teaching and guide my thinking. I'd like to bring some of his timeless ideas into this community for you, the educators who plan and improve student learning, sometimes with the use of technology. .
What strategies have you used to encourage authentic problem-solving of community issues? Do your students feel the power in creating a legacy?
I'd pair him with Ian Jukes...so energetic and his view on "students wired for technology" has really changed my teaching approach to be as inclusive as possible of technology. Have heard them both first hand and consider them to be exceptional motivators of change in our education system. I'd just love to "pick their brains".
If we cannot reach/teach our students in the venues through which they learn best, then our successes will be limited.
