From What Kids Know to Who Kids Know

Using the latest research and data, we will discuss how high school and college learning should not only focus on knowledge acquisition but also on building students' professional networks and situating their learning within real world relationships. Relying on the research of Julia Freeland Fisher at the Clayton Christensen Institute and David Berg of Big Picture Learning, we will plot a course to reimagining school to be something that is much more about who kids know, not just what the know.
