Educators are pulled in so many constantly changing directions. Donna will discuss how we can address these obligations while providing deep and meaningful learning experiences, not only for our students, but for ourselves as well. Suggestions to work smarter by condensing and combining, and that can in turn deepen teaching, learning, and our lives while we engage fully in the process. 21st Century Learning, Project Based Learning, and Technology will be the common languages.
