Creating change in education that is ‘good’ everyone
Join the conversation on #whatisschool this Thursday August 28 at 7PM EDT (Friday 9am AEST, 11am NZT, 7am Singapore) as we discuss creating change in education.
As we speed towards graduating the first generation of digital natives it is still unclear; what jobs they will hold? How will their education serve them? Will they be prepared to be the communicators, inventors and thinkers that this century needs or will they be left behind?
This week #whatisschool goes back to its roots, creating change in education that is good for students, parents and teachers. Join us as we explore the opportunity to re-create school in a way that serves the people who rely on us. It is the #whatisschool 3 month anniversary and it is going to be massive. Make sure you put it in your diary and if you are not already signed up to our ‘Remind’ notifications – click here.

For making #whatisschool the #1 trending chat.
Thank you for making #whatisschool a roaring success! Last week we trended in the top three in US, Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, and for the first time, #1 in Canada. Teachers in Europe and South Africa are checking in during the middle of the night to join the conversation. All this is due to your passion and dedication to evolving your class, to preparing students for a workforce that is largely undefined. As we go forward it is clear to me that to not implement ideas we share is not a matter of choice or being stuck in a mindset, it is a disservice to students around the world. Please continue spreading the word so we can make a change in education that is GOOD for students, GOOD for teachers and Good for parents. We have the opportunity to re-create school in a way that serves the people who rely on us, not government or big business. The archive of last week’s chat can be found here.
