Engaging our students in relevant skills and practices is more important than ever if we are to compete in a global 21st century.  It’s also extremely challenging.  This inspirational keynote explores the role that culture plays in educational progress, the future of global success and student achievement, the importance of process over product, and how the arts are at the center of the innovation landscape.

Critical and Creative Thinking are the hallmarks for innovation.  How can we capture these thinking processes to better serve our students?  In this popular presentation, Susan will share strategies that make student thinking come alive.  Participants will actively engage in sample strategies that showcase the human thought process and how we can weave thinking through integration.  It’s time to reboot your creativity and supercharge your thinking!

STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) is one of the hottest topics in teaching today.  Yet, there are so many questions around how to integrate STEAM practices authentically.  This presentation will provide participants with a deep understanding of what STEAM education is, how to making connections across content areas, and how these strategies can lead us full STEAM ahead in 21st century educational practices.
