ABSTRACT

Developing 21st Century Teenagers

What is a 21st century teenager? Ask that question and you’ll get a myriad different answers.  What we do know however is that the world has changed dramatically since the dawn of the 21st century and as such what a 21st century teenager needs to be has also changed. This session looks at the skills and knowledge that teenagers need to succeed in school, succeed in life and succeed in a global community and how we can help develop them to achieve the success.
