Will Richardson will join the Northwest Iowa AEA Leadership Academy on Jan. 16, 2017, at Emmetsburg High School to help participants rethink their roles as schools, classrooms and educators. Titled From “Old School” to “Bold School”: Making the Jump from Traditional to Modern Learning, his session will discuss the paths that a number of “bold schools” are taking to fundamentally redefine their value as places of learning, not of content and teachers.

Richardson is the author of the highly ranked and read edublog Weblogg-ed and author of books, Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms.

We’ll discuss the challenges of remaining an “old” school, define the main characteristics of “bold” schools, look at schools that are already bridging the gap, and suggest ways to begin relevant, “bold” conversations around real change in our own schools and communities.
