Presentation Title: Create the Future

Presentation Description: Over the past three years, international educators and global collaboration experts Kim Cofino and Julie Lindsay have together run workshops within schools that are designed to open doors to new modes of teaching and learning and focus on the learner (teacher and student) as a communicator, collaborator and creator. A hands-on approach is emphasized in the workshops with opportunities for learners at all levels to explore, discuss and model 21st Century pedagogy using digital tools. The focus of the workshop is for participants to design an engaging, technology-rich, collaborative project to implement in their classroom. This presentation will share via video the methodology of the ‘Create the Future’ workshop and focus on participants as they work through the challenges presented during the two days.

    Thanks for providing a great presentation as well as a link to your wiki. The wiki has great examples of how to take this back to our own schools and provide this kind of professional development. I think it’s essential that we model the type of learning in our professional development that we want to see in our classrooms with students. Your plan provides this framework. Thanks for sharing always!

  2. Model for professional develop was a good thing. I have done this with another class and it was a great deal of work but worth the knowledge.

  3. Thanks ladies,

    I love the format and process. Don’t be surprised if I steal this.

  4. Well done! I appreciate the structure you both provide in your workshop. Count me in when you are ready to introduce a virtual participant! :)

    Thanks for providing this presentation for this year’s K-12 Conference. I like how you broke the structure of Professional Development and linked it to how it can also be applied in how we teach in the classroom!
