Evangelist at Google

Sponsored by Premier Silver Partner Panorama Education

Don’t ask students what they want to be when they grow up, but what problems they want to solve . . . then give them the environment to build the knowledge, skills and abilities to solve problems. This changes the conversation from who do I want to work for, to what do I need to learn to be able to do that. Listen to Jaime as he evangelizes the power and potential of technology and the web as enabling and supporting tools in pursuit of inquiry-based learning models.
