Marta's keynote: How Do We Prepare Our Student for the Future?
What skills are employers looking for? How can educators adopt different mindsets to encourage the development of these skills (both for themselves and for students) in their classrooms? This is not just about integrating technology in the classroom to prepare students for tomorrow; it's a rally for the need to change the culture and expectations in schools today in order to help craft what that tomorrow could be.
