Sir Ken Robinson, in his 2008 TED Talk, speaks about how we, as educators, are preparing students for a world we can't even imagine. How do we do that within our current pedagogical frameworks? It is time to rethink the traditional classroom model, to change the structures of our classrooms to meet the needs of 21st century learners. Our job as educators is to create dynamic arenas of change, to help students leverage information. We don't know what the world will look like in the next 15 years but we know that students who are autonomous, independent, active producers will be ready to think and work in an ever changing environment. **Teachers attending this training should have completed their GT 30 hours foundation training
