E104 - Making It Real: Institutionalizing a 21st-Century Mind-Set

2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Ferrante (Conference Center)
Jenny Howland, Makery Facilitator, Lower School K-8, Katherine Delmar Burke School & Fablabs K-12 Google Group, BAISNET, NYCIST
Susan Faust, Librarian, Lower School, Katherine Delmar Burke School & San Francisco Chronicle

The 24/7 buzz about 21st-century skills turned into a deep institutional conversation at Katherine Delmar Burke School during the last three years, with Howland and Faust serving as the facilitators. Out of this grew a comprehensive and mission-driven, concise (one-page!) guide to teaching and learning in the 21st century: “How We Learn: A Model for the 21st Century.” Howland and Faust show how to connect theory (the model) with the real world, using authentic demonstrations of learning. In disciplines from art to zoology and at every grade level from kindergarten through eighth grade, students gain knowledge, skills, and understanding while they prepare to survive and thrive in a world of change.
