RSCON4: Worldwide educator conversations that need YOU

YOU have a seat at the WORLDWIDE table of BIG IDEAS in education--at the Reform Symposium Conference. Well, it's more like a bunch of tables all pushed together filled with the bustle of excited people speaking different languages, on a variety of devices; some in pajamas and others in their work clothes. It's completely free and no plane tickets to buy. Please get a drink, sit down, listen, talk, connect, and learn Oct 11-13 with passionate and connected educators like yourself! There are plenty of chairs, plenty of choice, and the company is stellar. :)

I am fired up and ready to experience RSCON4 (Reform Symposium Conference 4) and share my stories with others.
  • I'm sharing in 2 sessions about things I'm passionate about for kids' learning--the benefits of large areas of dry erase surfaces and the need to get kids ACTIVELY talking BACK to information that is omnipresent in books, websites, photos, tweets, videos. Empowering kids to feel able to TACKLE information and not fear it is vital. Kids run from opportunity in classes and careers because they fear information and they lack confidence. Time to get personal with information and make it yours! 

  • My passion centers on giving kids the tools and skills to interact with their world and learn with abandon. Learning, at its core, is a beautiful state of flow that, if given time and wings, will take care of itself happily; will accomplish its goal and then some. Let the learners lead and their natural learning, curiosity, and zeal will take over transform them.
