What happens when the school principal moves her office to the school library and opens the door to students? Magic! Classrooms are often focused on the required learning and consequently are standands centric instead of student centric. This principal's journey into my school library blew my professional mind! I made the announcement to all the teachers that I was in the library and feel free to send students anytime, lives changed! Hear how students surfaced their personal interests and what technoloy we use to surface them. Learn how reading, books, technology, coding, legos, robotics, and more were broungt to our school by our kids! Learn how the greatest innovation power of our schools are and has always been... our students!
