About the webcast To deal with the challenges of tomorrow, schools must create opportunities for children to acquire deep knowledge of literacy and the world, to apply flexible strategies to solve problems, to weigh alternative solutions and make wise decisions, and to work collaboratively with others on innovative projects.
Discover how children develop decision-making efficiency during meaningful and authentic learning experiences. Includes downloadable slides as well as transcripts of videos of teaching and learning interactions to illustrate these principles.
