Keynote speaker: Larry Rosenstock
Abstract: Larry Rosenstock is the C.E.O. of the San Diego-based High Tech High, a network of charter schools and a graduate school of education. Rosenstock and his team created three design principles that seemed to be common in the successful urban high schools that they found. These design principles are personalization, real-world connection, and common intellectual mission. High Tech High is the first school in the country to be designed based on those principles.

Pedagogy of the oppressed – Paulo Friere
What does this mean for my own practice?
-What can we do better in our classroom program to better integrate the curriculum through an inquiry model. Integration makes learning real and meaningful. Why do we continue to teach subjects in isolation when they interlink. The world is fluid and forever changing.
