Real World Learning: Engaging with Industry to Deliver Real World Learning
Participants will address the design question: how might we create experiences for students to gain exposure, excitement, and experiences related to the modern workplace? Participants will learn about the why, the how, and the what surrounding real world learning, with an end goal of developing at least one real world learning opportunity for your school/district/class to implement this school year.  Resources and examples will be given, culminating in a design thinking session for brainstorming and consensus building.
