Location: Mount Vernon Square

Session Description

Never before has a catch phrase been interjected into educational mission statements around the world with so little understanding of what it means as, "21st Century Learning." Dr. Jeff Borden will unpack what neo-millennial learning can and should be, as well as a few old policies and procedures, embedded deeply in the educational DNA that need to go. From game changers based on cognitive science to best practices found in education psychology and support for it all through technology platforms and frameworks, attendees will have a better understanding of how to make tomorrow's learning start happening today as we build Education 3.0.

This session will Tell, Show, Do, Review, and Ask in a modeled way. The presenter will interject games, video, challenges, and incorporate meaningful ways to think through everything from a flipped MOOC to individualized instruction that assesses measurable creativity.
