Schools of the Future

The Schools of the Future conference was a venue for educators around the state as well as some from the mainland to share their research, programs, successes and challenges with other educators. A few that I attended included: Teaching Toward Global Competence This presentation focused on why teaching global competence is so important. A few important take a ways included: We live in an every changing world which demands us to continually learn new skills The global economy we live in means new ways of working  Global issues require local solutions  Discussing world events are an important part of global competency, but only 37% of high school students say world events were discussed regularly in their classes.  Global Competency Matrix is a tool that can help students develop global competency  We help students: Investigate the World, Recognize Perspectives, Communicate ideas and Take Action.  Global Competency Matrices can be used when teaching all subjects SO
