Embracing the Core of Innovative Teaching and Learning Now and Moving Forward

Although teaching face-to-face is different than in a remote or hybrid learning situation, the core values of what is important should stay the same no matter the environment. How do we ensure that we support our educators, communities and students, while we are all feeling overwhelmed? How do we embrace the "Innovator's Mindset" when innovation is no longer optional, but necessary for all learners? In this keynote, George will focus on the “Core of Innovative Teaching and Learning” and provide examples of how we can create a “new and better normal" in education even when facing uncertainty. This presentation that will make you "laugh, cry, and think", while providing practical ideas you can use within your school community.
