2015 ZETA Blast Keynotes
Human qualities that enhance teaching and learning processes as well as those that create barriers are in all of us. At the conclusion of this session, this speaker will encourage audience participants to take action in at least one positive way to help strength connections between teachers and learners.
Computers and networks have transformed writing, making publication and distribution easy and instant and creating a culture in which we write more now than at any point in human history. Technologies are changing the teaching writing in schools as well. Some enhance learning and professionalize teacher work. Others automate. Robots are coming.
Remember why you went in to teaching? Has the haze of soul-sucking standardized tests, political undermining of the value of our profession, and mind-numbing common assessments left you blinded to what ultimately matters? Shawn will help you get back to basics with a few stories and suggestions to energize you and your students all year long.
