Collectors or Connectors - how should we teach?
Information is said to be the fastest growing substance on the planet. That means more objectives to cover and standards to emphasize; higher expectations from administrators, and parents as well as increased student diversity.

Join me as we explore the information age, its impact on our classrooms, and how we as educators can prepare our students for success.
