Balancing Innovation and Tradition in a Rapidly Changing World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In a world where students are constantly plugged in, how do we find the balance between engaging them on “their level” and also teaching them the face to face skills of conversation and real life interaction? When children share the same physical space, how do we ensure they also share the same mental space?

 


In this session we will attempt answer the following questions.

 

  • How do we find the balance between plugged in and unplugged learning?
  • How much technology should happen in the classroom and how much at home?
  • How does the “digital divide” impact our choices about how and what to teach?
  • What are the essential face-to-face skills that we do not want to lose?
  • What are the essential technology skills that students must learn?
