Be kind, don't judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation. Jasmine Guinness
For the first time in history, we have four different generations working side-by-side in the workplace, including in our schools. There is a variety of things that help shape our values and who we are, including shared life experiences such as historical events that have impacted individuals and generations as well as personal experiences unique to each person. These differences in generations can create conflicts in the workplace … what is "right" for one generation is often in conflict with what is "right" for another generation. So, what are we to do in this age of working collaboratively and cooperatively in order to have a positive impact on our students and their learning? Join us for this 3-hour professional development opportunity that will help you to: identify characteristics and gain a better understanding of the four generations, improve communications and teamwork, accept personal responsibility in working together, and provide tips and suggestions for overcoming generational differences.
Registration for this session will include a copy of the book, Generations at School - Building an Age-Friendly Learning Community."
