SSAT 17th National Conference
November 24, 2009 § Leave a comment
Tomorrow I am again visiting the National Conference, with this years theme exploring the issues relating to 21st century schooling: the globalised challenge. I have already booked in my world-class keynote speakers, school showcases and the occasional breakfast, lunchtime and showcase session.
In addition to the ‘new ideas to take back to school to continue the redesign of education for the young people’ I am looking forward to hearing Pulitzer Prize winning journalist’s and international bestseller of ‘The World Is Flat,‘ Thomas L Friedman. It was a fascinating read and it really opened my thinking to a global perspective. Since then I believe it has had a number of revisions, technology waits for no man, including Thomas L Freidman.
I hope to blog my impressions of the conference over the next free days, tagged #SSATo9.
