Venue: Online via Zoom

The world is changing and it is not going to go back! Are you future proofing your students and preparing them for the changes ahead? If you are simply teaching content, a machine will fast replace you. 21st Century education is far more than the content. It is about preparing students for an ever-changing world.

In this presentation, Karen will unpack the fundamentals of true learning and growth. You will look at strategies for those learned helpless students, the perfectionists and the non-engaged. Karen will introduce you to teaching through the dispositional lenses. Packed with practical examples you can use the next day in the classroom, Karen will challenge you to make simple and subtle changes that will have a lasting impact on student success.
