April 4, 2014 - April 7, 2014
Gary and Sylvia will lead a half day executive leadership workshop on Invention and Innovation. More information on this workshop – it’s tailored for school board members and leaders!
#13 Invent to Learn
Join other Board members for an afternoon of hard fun and problem solving – where computing meets tinkering and design. The workshop begins with the case for project-based learning and an exploration of how making, tinkering, and engineering are the best ways to support the Common Core and the Next Generation Science Standards. You will view examples of children engaged in complex problem solving with new game-changing technologies and identify the lessons for district policy. Participants will have the chance to tinker with a range of exciting new low- and high-tech construction materials that can amplify the potential of students in every subject, grade level, and socio-economic status. The workshop will give you first-hand experience that will be invaluable as you grapple with the coming changes to education in the 21st century.
Register for NSBA and this workshop – it’s tailored for school board members and leaders!
Gary will also present a session – “The Creative Learning Revolution You Can’t Afford to Ignore”
