On June 26th, I had the privilege of attending the inaugural Tomorrow's Classroom's Today conference at the historic Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia. The conference was created by Evolving Educators and had the best keynotes one could ask for in Jerry Blumengarten, who is best known for having a list for EVERYTHING educational, and Rich Kiker, the #1 Google Apps Educator in the world. Both were exceptionally entertaining men who captured the essence of what this conference was about: How should we best teach our students so they can succeed in a world where their future jobs don't even exist yet? The above world cloud represents my notes from the day and shows that each session was indeed student-centered.
My big takeaways from the day:
I intend this blog to be a reflection journal of sorts, on topics such as teaching, leadership, pedagogy, and tacos.
