Our young people…and digital learning

– the motivation is: the student has a global audience
– you explain that, it’s amazing what happens to them (students) when they understand this global audience

– it is changing the culture of our schools, the culture change
– working on things like work ethic
– teaching kids they have a global focus

Do your students have a work ethic that is globally competitive?

Are you teaching students to have a global voice?
– impact around the world…. that is absolutely essential
