Greetings 21st Century Educators! We have a new challenge for you that definitely takes ingenuity, creativity, communication, and critical thinking……HOWEVER it has one extra challenge –you will NOT use any tech to do it. Yes, we want you to develop an outstanding non-technology day for your students.
- Create a an exciting 21st Century Skill Day
- Provide opportunities for communication and collaboration
- Develop great ideas for dynamic teaching
- Technology - that’s right – no email, photography, phones, iPads, computers. Don’t worry it’s just for one day J
Our Worldwide Educational Unplug Day is Friday, March 23rd, but feel free to move the date if Spring Break coincides with our special day.
Now here’s the 2nd challenge – we want you to share what your plans are for the day. What activities will your students do? What discussions will be held? What critical thinking interactions will be designed?
Share your ideas from February 28 - March 31 for your chance to be entered in a $50 gift certificate.
