Wild Imaginations, Curious Children, and Stories from Student-Ready Educators
Stephanie Passman & Eric Bredder, Albemarle County Public Schools

Our goal everyday is to make school awesome for students and teachers alike. We will share ways to provide each student with the necessary resources to learn, take meaningful risks, and create physical and digital representations of their original ideas. We will share anecdotes that provide strong evidence of the student learning that occurs while building meaningful relationships, and fostering creativity and collaboration. Student-ready educators are prepared for all students, so they can be prepared for their future.

We are excited to welcome Stephanie Passman and Eric Bredder as keynote speakers. These educators from Albemarle County will talk with us about creating innovative learning environments where students collaborate and create as a natural part of the learning process. Thanks for EN Computers for their support of the keynote.
