Lethbridge School District - 21st Century Learning

I recently attended, and presented at a District-wide Pro-D day in Lethbridge (October 2012). The focus was on 21st Century Learning, and the kinds of skills students need to develop.

My talk (the keynote for the conference) addressed the following four main questions:

  1. what exactly are the 21st century skills we keep talking about? 
  2. what kind of world are we preparing our students for? 
  3. what is the role of inquiry-based learning and technology in all of this? 
  4. how does this change how we see our roles as educators?
