How to Harness Students’ Evolving Vision for Learning: Research & Recommendations

Tuesday, January 12, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Presented by Julie Evans, Chief Executive Officer, Project Tomorrow
Sponsored by Libraries Unlimited and ABC-CLIO Solutions


Analysis of the Speak Up Research Project data revealed that today’s K-12 students have a unique vision for digital learning that is often surprising and sometimes perplexing to the adults in their learning lives. Students are increasingly tapping into a diverse set of digital tools, content and resources to self-direct learning around areas of academic passion, both in and out of school. Most importantly, this emerging learning behavior is shaping how the students view information, research, learning and school.

In this webinar, Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow, explored this phenomenon as she addressed these questions from School Library Connection Editorial Experts:

  • What are the three elements that comprise the Student Vision for Digital Learning?
  • What types of learning experiences support the Student Vision?  How prevalent are those types of experiences in schools today?
  • How can teachers and librarians use this information about the Student Vision to transform learning in their schools?

Going beyond anecdotes and assumptions, this interactive and eye-opening webinar provided school library leaders and educators with a new set of lenses for evaluating the future of learning.

Join the SLC @ The Forefront community to participate in online discussions with peers, for invitations to upcoming webinars, to view past webinar recordings, to take a quiz and receive a CE certificate for a past webinar, and for access to more resources.
