The Peace, Love and EdTech Conference at Southmont High School this week has been a thought-provoking and toolbox-building experience.
International speaker/author Will Richardson encouraged listeners to merge the traditional education techniques that work with modern techniques that create unique learning experiences.
In an interview with Ditch That Textbook, Will discussed interacting online with strangers (for students AND teachers), the U.S. education’s struggles to deal with poverty and “information leadership.”
