In the globally connected world that we live in today, students need to understand the importance of being connected. Global collaborations are equally as important as the direct collaborations they deal with in their schools on a daily basis. How do we teach students to open their minds to these collaborations? How do we as educators open up our minds to change within the schools that we work in? What changes need to be made within your school to ensure you are keeping ‘up to date’ with the students in your care? How can we move the notion of creating a ‘dream school’ and making it into a reality?
In the future, it is predicted that 65% of today’s students will end up doing jobs that don’t exist yet.
