    I'm going to DC and I am here to help- Join the conversation?

      The challenge of fusing the three Rs and the four Cs—critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity and innovation—is more urgent than ever. From September 20-October 5, 2010, we welcome your participation in this Cyber Summit on 21st Century Readiness.


      There are several free webinars leading up to the Summit and some great discussions at http://www.weareteachers.com/community/p21-cyber-summit- join us!


      Next Tuesday (oct 5th) I will be in DC - with a delegation from the Mexican Secretariat of Education- attending the National Summit. My team has asked me (challenged me?) to post during the event. Come be with me "virtually' to share your thoughts or ideas.


      Below are the agenda items- if you want me to raise your comments, questions, concerns- drop me a note.


      I recommend you tune in real time to watch Sarah Brown-Wessling, the national teacher of the year, give her presentation. She rocks!
