Duration: 60 mins

Overview: How can we make learning authentic for our kids everyday? School is no longer a place where kids come to learn just from us. They have the world at their fingertips and we need to give them the opportunities to engage in it in authentic and meaningful ways. We have been hearing for years about preparing our kids for the future, the unknown, but the truth is, they have so much to offer the local and global community now if we give them the right opportunities. We believe learning needs to have a purpose and an authentic audience. Come and see some different ways to engage kids in the real world through Project Based Learning and a range of digital tools.
