21st Century Learning Conference

Learning Tour Overview

Twice a year, students and faculty at Nipmuc Regional High explore the question “If you had 1 hour, 1/2 a day or a full day to learn something new, what would you learn about?” Collectively the school community brainstorms answers to this question and reflects on the results. Groups of teachers, students, and community members come together to offer sessions that address these topics and offer sessions Nipmuc students. Science and math teachers partner to run a workshop on digital photography, or an English teacher and four students may run a seminar on leadership. While technology may or may not be a focal point, it will be, as Chris Lehmann says, “ubiquitous, invisible and necessary.” Technology is a resource to make relevant learning possible for teachers, students and community members alike.
