We’ll explore ways to use the latest technology and pedagogy to prepare students for the 21st-century workforce. Attendees will collaborate with other educators and come away with concrete ideas for embedding employability skills into their content-area lessons, as well as turnkey lesson plans from EVERI explicitly focused on career exploration and readiness.
