Student Interests as Doorways To Opportunity

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The responsibilities of school are shifting beyond "what you know" (infinite! ever changing! accessible at your fingertips on the internet!). What if schools were also responsible for who you know? And how you know yourself?
Our organization, Big Picture Learning, has over 25 years of experience helping schools transform from content focused to relationship and opportunity focused. In this session, you'll explore how student's interests can be connected to impactful people, places, and opportunities by reflecting on our own interests and passions journey and then taking on the role of a student trying to make a connection with a professional.
