Bold School: Old School Wisdom + New School Technology = Teaching and Learning that Works
Wisdom informs innovation. The latter simply cannot exist without the former. In the push for schools of the future, we need to take an honest look at the strategies of our past. Which of these tactics need to accompany us on the path to progress, and which need to go the way of the floppy disk? The world’s best educators currently operate in the space where wisdom and innovation coalesce rather than compete for time. They understand the elite skills of our past need a place in classrooms of the future. Weston Kieschnick will share his perspective on how the ICLE framework of Rigor, Relevance and relationship is implemented using the best strategies of our past and future.
Weston Kieschnick has spent more than 15 years working with educators from every state in the US and more the 30 countries around the world. He will share how the world’s most masterful educators try early, fail often, and pursue excellence with joy to create rigorous and relevant learning experiences that work.
