Structure of workshop

Note:   I provide below a broad structure of the workshops. The content will be customized for the audience and the time available. For instance, the content will be different for administrators than for teachers and will be covered in lesser depth in the half-day workshop than in the full day version. Each workshop will consist of 4 sessions (as given below). Topics will be covered through a mixture of lecture, demonstration, small and large group discussions and hands-on-activities.

The handouts, readings and resources below provide more detail on each of these topics.

#1   What is 21st Century Learning (a synthesis)
#2   Technology integration, transformational teaching & the TPACK Framework
#3   Trans-disciplinary skills for creativity & creative leadership
#4   Summing up, action items, next steps...
