Let’s Do This!
In WanderlustEDU we take a deep breath, learn to re-appreciate why we became involved in education, and prepare to try new things. The courage to stay relevant in our profession is a work in progress. We can do our absolute best when we understand and nurture certain attributes: Motivation, Environment, Skills, and Knowledge. Motivation is our what drives us. Our Environment is the conditions in which we exist and embark. Skills are what we have and gain along the way. Knowledge is what we know through training and experience.

OnwardEDU: The Future of Work and Innovating Education
A technology-driven shift in education is upon us. The Future of Work demands a different approach to the knowledge and skills we have relied on in education. Our need to adopt emergent technology, and meaningful pedagogy to leverage it, has never been this high. In OnwardEDU, we will explore the future demands on students and examine steps to iterate our practice.
Access to Agency
What do problem solvers, go-getters, and DIYers have in common? AGENCY
When we figure things out and get things done, we feel as though we are in charge. The sense of agency refers to this feeling of being in the driving seat when it comes to our actions. In an age where we see the best moments of people’s lives through social media, we must be more transparent with our learners about the real-ness of life and the sticktoittiveness necessary to get things done. We need to provide access to our agency.
Exploration and Wonder
“When you look at the possibilities instead of the problems, the future is filled with endless opportunities.” – Zig Ziglar
In Exploration and Wonder, we speak directly to our students and challenged them to seek to change the world by seeing the example of the international peers. The mission of this keynote is to provide students with an understanding of the power they hold now to effect positive change in their local, national, and global communities.
