Hardwired to think about learning and teaching, Emily works with other educators to put these ideas into action. Inquiry, serious play, and universal design make her heart sing, and she knows the powers of data, feedback, and patience to implement productive change.
Thoughtful integration of hi- and low-tech in student-centered classrooms has been a hallmark of her career, and she has presented and facilitated workshops on these topics at EduCon, ISTE, the National Maker Faire, and the World Maker Faire: New York.
Three generations of Calders designed pieces significant to the Ben Franklin Parkway landscape: The William Penn statue atop City Hall; Swann Memorial Fountain; and The Ghost at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This tour will look at each piece individually and explore the role of public art.
