Why promote 21st century skill development?  How are digital immigrants essential in the education of today's digital natives?  What are some ways to engage today’s students?

Along the way, Mike will share some tools he has created to assist your digital natives. These include, ”Ten Basic Google Search Techniques” and “Seven Step (A-G) Web Evaluation Program." Learn about amazing free web resources such as Intel Thinking Tools and investigate student creativity with some video creation ideas. Have the opportunity to smile, laugh, engage and reflect on both practice and possibilities. Walk away with points to ponder, antidotes, a reason to transform and resource material that you can share with your personal learning community.
