Invitation - Conference: Skills for the 21st Century: Becoming Citizens of Tomorrow’s World Today
Skills for the 21st Century: Becoming Citizens of Tomorrow’s World Today
Somebody once said that the only constant in teaching is change, and the more flexible we are in our understanding and use of technologies, pedagogy and our content areas, the more prepared we will be to integrate and teach with them. But… is it only with this knowledge as a foundation that teachers can be 21st century-ready?
It is our duty nowadays to help our students connect learning with real life and to provide them with the necessary skills to prepare them for success and, as educators, we are determined to help all students reach their full potential. This is no small challenge, and it is our responsibility to prepare ourselves for the unique demands of the 21st century.
Join us to discover ways you can help your students –and yourself– become the kind of global citizens the world now needs.
Date:Saturday, October 1st 2016 Time:8:30 – 13:30 Venue: Hotel Los Delfines – San Isidro
