Learning to Speak Native- Steve Dembo
We live in an era that has seen the democratization of knowledge, the flattening of the earth, and the rise of
wikinomics. The amount of information online keeps increasing while the barriers to accessing it continue to
decrease. 21st century students aren’t merely products of these shifts, they are the instigators at the forefront of
the next digital revolution. Are you prepared for students that live online in a state of transparency, defining
‘private’ as only being seen by a few thousand people? In order to guide students to safely navigate this new
digital frontier, teachers have to learn to speak the same language. Thankfully, thousands of teachers are giving
free lessons every hour of every day. While the tools may evolve at a dizzying pace, educators who create a
personal learning network will always have the resources they need to stay ahead of the curve. Come learn how
teachers worldwide have banded together to become their own best source of professional development…. and
lost their digital accent along the way.
