Inspiring Students: Bringing Awe Back to Learning
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM:
Room: Chicago Ballroom
Format: Spotlight Session
Brief Session Description: Awe is a huge component of life - it's hardwired in our brains. When we experience the sensation of awe, we are consumed by wonder, relevancy, emotion, engagement, inspiration, and real-world connections. Awe is a driving force for learning that will not just benefit our students now, but also well into their future. However, traditional views and functions of school deprives many students from experiencing the joy and power of awe as a catalyst for meaningful learning. During this keynote, Eric will share innovative, research-based practices that you can implement to bring back a sense of awe to learning.
