E-Books, E-Kids, E-Flat! Three trends schools will ignore at their peril
This workshop explores three major changes being evidenced today: 1) the prevalence of ubiquitous digital information sources, 2) the defined attributes of a “Net” generation, and 3) the rise of a global economy. Each change will be discussed along with strategies that schools and educators can use to stay relevant in their students’ lives. For warned is for armed!
