Copley Place Hotel, Boston

In today’s complex, 21st Century world, it is essential for students to be engaged and ethical learners, thinkers, and citizens. Mind, brain and developmental research has found that students who feel valued and empowered are more likely to be actively engaged in school and their community, perform better academically, have more positive social-ethical behaviors and are more likely to be active citizens. Educators can improve school and civic engagement by empowering students through a sense of meaning and purpose, by giving them a choice and voice in their learning, by promoting real-world problem solving, and by providing opportunities for them to feel valued by contributing to civic, community, environmental and global projects. Discover how to empower students to be engaged learners, ethical citizens, and world problem solvers.
