Tony Wagner, Overcoming the Global Achievement Gap

In America today, there is a new Achievement Gap: it is the gap between the new skills that all students need in the 21st century versus what is tested and taught even in our best schools. There is also a Learning Gap between how the Net Generation is learning and collaborating out of school versus what they do all day in classrooms. In his presentation, Tony Wagner will help educators understand these gaps and then explore the most effective strategies for preparing all students for careers, college, and citizenship in the new global knowledge society.
