Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century: Welcome Home – A Guide to the Digital NationOctober 20, 2009 Chase Collegiate School • Waterbury, CT



How does a teacher in the classroom of today continue to engage students and expand the boundaries of learning? THINK strategically. Use technology wisely. Work collaboratively. Communicate effectively. Recognize how the world around you connects to everything you do (The Boston Globe ). Explore how the web and digital media are impacting the way we learn (FRONTLINE Digital Nation).
As you travel through a digital nation, we invite you to turn on your creative powers. Join us as we explore the innovative projects, lesson plans and pedagogical techniques colleagues are employing at fellow CAIS schools as they navigate teaching their students in a 21st Century nation. Our October 20th conference will host 16 stations spanning the K-12 spectrum — teachers sharing specific and effective 21st century curricula and projects from their schools at tables, not podiums. This collaborative conference will initiate a multitude of conversations among colleagues and will provide K-12 teachers with real take-aways.
So turn over a new professional development leaf and think strategically. To encourage group participation, we’ve built in a sliding registration fee. The more people you register from your school, the greater the savings. Register you and your colleagues on the CAIS website at: http://www.caisct.org/cais/events/EventSignup.aspx?EventID=405
We look forward to exploring with you!
