The objective of this edWebinar is for teachers to leave with clear instructions for teaching an innovative week-long curriculum that empowers students to make informed education and career choices.
“We have students who are passionate, engaged and comfortable with technology, yet students are living in silos and not equipped with the 21st century skills which they genuinely need to be part of the global workforce of tomorrow.” This statement by Amy McCooe, CEO of Level Up Village, during a recent edWebinar hit home with her two co-presenters, Esra Murray, Fifth Grade Teacher at International School Dundee, CT, and Fran Kompar, Director Instructional Technology and Digital Learning at Wilton Public Schools, CT. Kompar expressed her frustration, “We are now 20 years into the 21st century, and we should be preparing our students for the work of their time, not the future because the future is now.” The presenters emphasized that the global skill most vital to students is learnability: the desire, passion, and capacity to learn, the ability to synthesize and evaluate information, and the willingness to take on new challenges. The impact of developing learnability skills will ensure that our young learners apply their knowledge and skills to the global workforce and become lifelong learners.
In this edWebinar learn how to engage and empower students through media and their own narratives and discover the various ways that media can help with learning outcomes.
Learn to engage young citizens in STEAM, and how to remain relevant, by making learning authentic and fully immersed in the backdrop of the global context.
