How Do You Engage the Rewired Brain?

“The increasing focus on the 21st century skills of critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity….are not the kind of skills that machines can help students develop;  only teachers can do that.”  Engaging the Rewired Brain (David Sousa)

(Yes, I realize the link leads to a long video; challenge yourself to scroll through the webinar and find three ‘ahas’ that you might want to share with a colleague.)

Anyway, we, as educators, “need to build platforms for learning, where students can make connections across different disciplines, with technology serving as the bridge across these areas.”  D. Sousa

What collaboration with colleagues have you done to make cross disciplinary connections? Please share them with us so we can learn and borrow from you!engaging-the-rewired-brain
