Educators are increasingly interested in integrating critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication into their teaching and learning systems. But these efforts will only be effective if districts change their policies and practices. In a recently published book, The Leader’s Guide to 21st Century Education: 7 Steps for Schools and Districts (Allyn and Bacon, 2012), Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill of EdLeader21 describe seven steps that district leaders can take to integrate twenty-first-century skills into their instructional programs.
Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education for a webinar on Monday, September 10, from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (ET), to explore ways districts can take the lead in twenty-first-century education. Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill will outline the steps of implementation. James Merrill, superintendent of Virginia Beach City Public Schools, will discuss what integration looks like in practice. Bob Wise, president of the Alliance and former governor of West Virginia, will moderate the discussion. Panelists will address questions submitted by webinar viewers from across the country.
