FutureCasting for iu13

FutureCasting, a framework of “life skills,” enables young people to connect who they are today with the person they will be in the future. Within this framework, students answer the questions “Who am I?” and “Who do I want to be?” The answers to these questions empower students to take control of their digital identity and personal reputation, identify the value systems that influence choices, define personal and “professional” goals, and become aware of how the choices they make today effect future opportunities. This session introduces teachers to FutureCasting and provides activities for participants that can be implemented immediately. Join us as we begin the work of helping students become the master of their own developmental trajectory and the hero of their own story!
