There is a significant opportunity in the first five days of school to set the tone concerning powerful, engaging and self-directed learning. By giving students ownership of their learning and having them develop tools and networks that will support them throughout the school year, we better prepare them for the global economy. In this session, participants will consider the broad opportunities that await in the first five days of school, including information literacy, student roles, global collaboration and more. They will then select a theme for the first five days of their year, break into smaller groups by theme and design the appropriate elements needed to bring this theme to life, just in time to return to school this Fall.
