We have to ask questions in today's classroom that can’t be googled. Why? Because any question that can, requires no critical thinking or problem-solving skills to solve. Join the iSchool Initiative team as they paint a vision for what learning could look like when students are challenged to find their own problems to solve and take ownership of their learning.
We have keynoted in 43 states, 12 countries, and 4 continents
