Seminar Short DescGuided by the book Empower by John Spencer and AJ Juliani, we'll explore how we can transform our teaching to become more student-centered, empowering our students to become more self-directed in their learning. We'll examine the challenges that standards, curriculum, and every day realities of school create for us, and plan for ways to get students more involved and engaged in their learning.
Seminar Full DescWhen we empower students, they crave learning that is both meaningful and relevant to their life, now and in the future, with opportunities to be unabashedly different and exceptionally remarkable. How does this fit in our world of standards, curriculum, and the every day realities of school?

Guided by the book Empower by John Spencer and A.J. Juliani, we'll explore how we can overcome these challenges and turn them into opportunities to transform our teaching to become more student-centered and for our students to become self-directed in their learning. Over the three days, we will share thoughts, ideas, and plans with other teachers in this collaborative learning community and create a network of support and guidance in the journey to help students become more involved and engaged in their own learning.
