November 12th Webinar: 21st Century Learning Naturally


Join us Monday, November 12, at 3:30 p.m. (Mountain Time) for a conversation about a school “dedicated to the study of natural sciences in a natural setting.” The webinar will be conducted in the CoLearning Network space on AdobeConnect. Jonathan Wuerth, co-founder of the School in the Woods (Academy School District 20), along with students at the school, will lead the conversation.
This webinar will explore how a school program can “inspire…students to be critical thinkers as they pursue lifelong learning through direct interaction with living systems, integrated into an academically challenging curriculum in a safe environment.”
Topics the webinar will explore include:
  • Inquiry science;
  • Collaboration among students and teachers;
  • Concrete application and development of 21st century skills;
  • Using school learning to foster lifelong learning.
Note the change from our regular schedule: This webinar will be conducted on the second Monday in November rather than the third, to accommodate Thanksgiving schedules.
