Schooling for the 21st Century: Unleashing Student Passion
A passionate student is a learning student. As the people of the world are becoming increasingly connected, the nature, use, ownership, and
purpose of knowledge are changing in profound ways. Our goal as educators is to leverage these connections and changes as powerful
means to improve teaching and learning in our schools. Come listen as Sheryl stirs a sense of urgency for shifting classroom practice toward more engaging approaches that unleash the passion that lies within each learner.
