Keynote Presentation: Educating Modern Learners: The Opportunities and Challenges of Schooling in the Connected World  

The last 10 years have seen an explosion of devices and connections that are changing the landscape of education and learning. We now carry massive storehouses of information and knowledge as well as billions of potential teachers in our pockets and backpacks. As a result, a new world of connected, networked, self-directed learning and creating is upon us, with huge implications for schools. What constitutes an education now that we can learn deeply in informal spaces outside the school walls? What are the new roles of teachers when content knowledge is ubiquitous? And how do we best prepare our students for the modern learning worlds in which they will live and work? We’ll tackle these and other questions as we explore the important and complex changes and shifts that come with ubiquitous access to the Web.

 Will Richardson: A parent of two teen-agers, Will Richardson has spent the last dozen years developing an international reputation as a leading thinker and writer about the intersection of social online learning networks and education. He was one of a handful of original education bloggers (willrichardson.com) and his work has appeared in numerous journals, newspapers, and magazines such as Ed Leadership, District Administration, Education Week, The New York Times, and English Journal. He is an outspoken advocate for change in schools and classrooms in the context of the diverse new learning opportunities that the Web and other technologies now offer.  Will has authored five books, most recently From Master Teacher to Master Learner (May 2015).  In total, his books have sold over 150,000 copies worldwide.  A former public school educator of 22 years, Will is a co-founder of Modern Learner Media and co-publisher of ModernLearners.com, which is a site dedicated to helping educational leaders and policy makers develop new contexts for new conversations around education. Over the past eight years, he has spoken to tens of thousands of educators in over a dozen countries about the merits of online learning networks for personal and professional growth.  Will lives in rural New Jersey with his wife Wendy and his children Tess and Tucker.

The NJAIS Division Head Conference is a professional development opportunity for Division Heads and Directors from across the state.  It will commence on Tuesday, April 12 and conclude on Wednesday, April 13.  Other speakers include: Naphtali Hoff, Kristine Scharaldi, and Lili Levinowitz (Music Together).  Don't miss this wonderful group of presenters and an opportunity to collaborate with your constituents at the beautiful Crystal Springs Resort! The event will begin at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12 in the Grand Cascades Lodge with afternoon tea and introductions.
