As we sit in preparation for the ISAS Teachers Conference, I am excited to hear some new ideas from some fabulous speakers. You can follow the twitter hash tag at #isastc to stay in touch with the conversations.
The conference kicks off with NAIS President Pat Bassett. Having heard him speak before I am anticipating some exceptional ideas.
Following Pat is Heidi Hayes Jacobs, who will be speaking about curriculum in the 21st century which is 12% over.
Then I have the pleasure of introducing Disrupting Class co-author Michael Horn. His talk should be extremely relevant to independent schools as he emphasizes student-centered learning.
I will post my reflections of as many talks as possible.
