Architects of Learning: A Conference on Co-Designing
 

The world requested we stretch our learning edges. Together, teachers and students found new ways to teach and learn. It is now time for us to reframe who we are and how we learn together. How do we do things differently? What happens when we knock down the walls, break down the silos, erase the concept of "front of the room'', disrupt the rows of desks and chairs, and view teachers as facilitators and coaches who create environments where students are the creators and designers of ideas?  What happens when the standards of teaching change? How would we re-design learning spaces? This conference empowers teachers to build learning opportunities, spaces, and frameworks that invite students as our partners in designing the future of our schools.
