Learning How2Learn- Change- Rethink-Amplify

We live in a time and space when it is is truer than ever that "change is the only constant”.

What are some cultural shifts in our fast changing world, that have an impact on our own learning as educators and leaders? How do we adapt to this in a school environment? Can we dwell on our experience and degrees as educators and continue to stay relevant? Learning how to learn might be the most important skill we did not learn when we were in school.

Do you have to be a tech guru to be literate in a digital world? Or are the ones who are self- motivated, life-long learners and the ones who are accepting of and embracing change the ones flourishing in the modern world? We will take a look at the urgency of shifting school culture to a culture of learning how to learn. Let's talk about LEARNING, not technology!
