Keynote presentation: Aligning learning areas for accountability and student engagement

Educators today are challenged by two seemingly opposite philosophies. First, they are expected to be accountable and to teach to mandated curriculum standards. Second, they are expected to engage students in the learning through relevant educational experiences. Yet, as we move deeper into the 21st Century, many students are finding school boring and irrelevant. In this presentation, we will explore how educators are creating meaningful yet rigorous educational experiences through aligning the learning areas to engage students in deep learning.
