For centuries, educational philosophers and psychologists have known two truths about learning: 1. Students bring prior knowledge, skills, and attitudes - often in the form of preconceptions or misconceptions - with them to school, and 2. Great learning experiences are active, social, and meaningful. In this workshop, participants will first unpack the realities of today's students. Whether they are Net-Gen,  iGen, or Generation Z, they possess prior experiences, traits, and characteristics previously unknown to educators. We will also explore what Scott McLeod, Dean Shareski, and Julie Graber refer to as Four Big Shifts: Deeper Learning, Student Agency, Authentic Context, and Technology Infusion to create authentic experiences for new learners.
