Who Owns the Learning?
Placing easy-to-use digital tools in the hands of our students can result in creative solutions that help classmates learn. We know that many children prefer to learn from their peers, yet this technique is often underestimated and underused in today’s classrooms. Encouraging students to contribute to their learning community is a powerful and effective way to improve achievement. We'll show you how.


Friday, October 18

J. Noah Brown, President and CEO, Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT)

First in the World: Community Colleges and America's Future
Brown will discuss how connecting past economic and educational policies and investments lead to future possibilities and continued national progress. Restoring America's prominence is within reach; the power of community colleges to increase educational attainment, thereby reducing income inequality by allowing more Americans to access real economic opportunity, is key to restoring America's position as First in the World.
