World Class Learners: linking the future with the past
In this presentation, Professor Yong Zhao proposes a three component model of what world class learners will need in the future to be global, creative, and entrepreneurial learners. Using research from his latest book, World Class Learners, Yong will discuss a triad model to achieve these goals; personalized and strength-based student driven curriculum, product-oriented learning, and the globe as the campus. Indicators to assess if schools are creating the environments necessary to achieve these goals will also be discussed.
Yong was named one of the 2012 ten most influential people in educational technology by the Tech & Learn Magazine. He has a very open presentation style, asking many questions of the audience and allowing extensive time for Q&A.
