What is school? Preparing students for the future

Thank you to everyone who joined today’s #whatisschool discussion. As always we LOVE having dedicated and passionate educators there to share the experience with us. In less than a month, What is School has become an incredible global learning environment. Today we experienced this first hand as we explored the topic of “What jobs are we preparing our students for?”. Global educators stopped by to discuss this topic and establish some incredible summer projects.

It was a pleasure to have you there – and again we trended (this time in USA, Canada, Australia, NZ and Singapore) – incredible! #whatisschool is getting bigger and better thanks to you. 

We have done our best to create an edchat space where people can express an unbiased response to questions about schooling, where educators have a voice in shaping the future through their experience, recommendations and interests.

Here is the archive of our chat via @storify – http://sfy.co/fmAK – Please share and make sure you join the conversation next week.

Every week we will post a short reflection like this after our discussion and provide the links to our archive through Storify (as above). Every Monday we will also share the questions for the upcoming session via twitter and our blogs.
Join us Thursday, July 10 at 7pm EST as we continue to explore the possibilities #whatisschool
