Keynote – Solving Problems That Matter: Future-focused learning
Today’s students have a legacy awaiting them—they will inherit the global challenges we see and read about each day. They will face critical issues that impact our entire planet, in addition to challenges that we can not yet imagine. We can empower them to solve these challenges for present and future generations now, in our own classrooms. To do this we must move our focus beyond literacy and numeracy, and into the realms of critical and creative thinking, ethical action, and a deep awareness and understanding of our global culture.
In Solving Problems That Matter, we’ll look at inspiring examples of the solutions-focused ingenuity students are demonstrating in innovative learning environments including STEM, inquiry, and PBL utilizing Solution Fluency to cultivate ethical, responsible Global Digital Citizens taking positive action and striving together to solve problems that matter. Together we’ll learn what we can start doing today to give our children a solutions-focused edge for creating a better tomorrow.
