How can we make the transition from “old school” to contemporary learning environments? Simply having technologies does not guarantee modern, relevant, and rigorous teaching and learning. If we want digitally literate, media savvy, and globally connected learners, then we need the same in our teachers and in leadership. The assessment dilemma facing educators will be a key focus of Heidi Hayes Jacobs’ presentation, as she will raise the possibility of accountability for innovation in combination with more effective methods for assessing foundational skills. Heidi will provoke our thinking and share examples of innovative 21st century programs and practices in action from around the world.
