Event Description

In Partnership with UNESCO and Partnership for 21st Century Learning, Global Education Conference Network

Sponsored by HP and ParticipateCoSN is committed to a global dialogue focused on the strategic uses of technology for the improvement of teaching and learning in elementary and secondary schools. As part of this commitment, CoSN will be convening the Symposium on Global Competencies on April 3, 2017 during the CoSN 2017 Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois at the Sheraton Grand Hotel.

In partnership with UNESCO, Partnership for 21st Century Learning, and the Global Education Conference Network, the CoSN Symposium on Global Competencies will bring together thought leaders from across the U.S. and around the world to explore issues, learn from each other and determine how they can ensure student success.

Our world is rapidly changing providing unprecedented challenges and opportunities for the students of today.  To be successful, our students will require new skills and competencies including collaboration, creativity, digital literacy and leadership along with mastery of the traditional core subjects. Use of technology can play a critical role in helping to foster these skills and competencies and supporting development of innovative practices for teachers and students. Educators must determine the best way to build these capacities and provide students with a skill set that will make them successful.

The dynamic and interactive structure of the CoSN Symposium on Global Competencies will explore questions such as

  • What new skills and competencies are necessary for college and career success?
  • How can technology play a role in fostering these skills and supporting the development of innovative practices for students and teachers?
  • What are school districts, states, countries doing to advance and enable global competencies for their students?

Additional Registration Required - Sponsorship for travel to this conference is NOT available.
