Overview

Whether for good or bad, the Internet and the information revolution have impacted nearly every aspect of society and social organizations, including our schools and how our students learn- and the challenge becomes how to address that impact. Technology and the Web have changed how students learn, study, and research, as well as how they interact with information, teachers, and each other. From Khan Academy to BYOD to Disrupting Class, it is increasingly clear that this is "Not your Father's School," and educational leaders who don't respond and plan accordingly will see their schools left behind. Join Jonathan Martin as he offers a fast-paced overview of a dozen things educators should be considering in order to make learning relevant and compelling for our students in the coming decade.

Project Red findings are interesting! Open testing makes the teacher accountable for deeper questions, and not simply ones that can be answered via google or a quick internet search.

I don't think 50% of h.s. courses will be online by 2019 as referred to in webinar. I do think 1-1 technology would be huge but our district is not there yet. I am also curious about online textbooks, again another avenue our district hasn't initiated.

Your points are so valid and valuable. We sometimes forget that social skills are imperative in the work place. Programs that allow students to experience real world learning are what helps many students stay focused and be successful with their education. Showing students the value of what they are learning is crucial in keeping them engaged. Thank you for this, it was great!

This gives a lot for educators to think about for future plans. Students need the social skills as you mentioned as well as the other points you outlined. Thanks.

This was very relevant and something I plan on using with a couple of grants I will write this year.
