Keynote: Wesley Fryer
Creating and Collaborating: The Keys to 21st Century Literacy
How much faster does the brain process images over text? More than 60,000 times. In the context of literacy and learning, if we are not using images, are we really trying to communicate?
When do students in our school get to touch technology, and what do they do when they get to use it? The old model of learning focuses on the teacher presentation of learning. Boredom is a by-product of this model.
Preaching to the choir. Create, Communicate, Collaborate.
