What year are you preparing your students for? 1980? 1995? 2025? Provocative and practical, Heidi Hayes Jacobs asks us to replace our dated curriculum with contemporary content and skills in a deliberate process called "upgrading." The strategies from her book Curriculum 21: Essential Education in a Changing World empower educators with specific ways to integrate web 2.0, digital tools, and global portals into each classroom.
•How can each classroom teacher start the upgrading process?
•How do we integrate new technologies even as we deal with testing pressures?
•How can we effectively globalize the curriculum?
•What will new versions of schools look like in the future?
•Are there signs of these now in the field?
•What does 21st century leadership need to change to adapt to meet the needs of our learner?
