From Scannable to Wearable, Teaching Generation Z

As educators we are in a unique position to influence the students in our care. Join this conversation about how to redefine our practice to suit Generation Z who are hyper-aware of the technology that surrounds them. This session will not train you to teach to the latest ed tech fad. This session will nurture a transformational mindset and a way of thinking that will prepare you to craft learning experiences with technologies that have not been invented yet. From scanable to wearable.
