How are you reimagining your school?
Today, educators around the world are changing their schools, transforming halls of repetition based learning into centres for great ideas and action. In India, educator Kiran Bir Sethi used two little words, “I can,” to create a contagious desire in her students to change their world. This idea resulted in the infection of the “I can bug” in hundreds of thousands of students across India. Your actions today can creating the type of school that sparks curiosity, creates an insatiable desire for learning and nurtures thinkers and doers whose great ideas will change the world.
How are you changing your school? How would you like it to change? What could your students accomplish if they were given a chance?
