Education – How will you change? #whatisschool
Join the conversation on #whatisschool this Thursday September 4 at 7PM EDT (Friday 9am AEST, 11am NZT, 7am Singapore) as we discuss creating change in education.
Lately, global discussions with educators have focussed on many exciting innovations happening in teaching, including technology, methodology and implementation of classroom design. But for every good idea or opportunity conversations suggest an equally bad result if changes in education aren’t treated with focus and thoughtfulness regarding the purpose of the education itself. Roughly half the students in current teaching systems are under prepared, or under challenged by the curriculum. Add to the thought that we are training students for opportunities in a world in which only 40% of the jobs currently available will remain in existence. With more and more strategies cropping up for alternative education and completely new school models, how will you change?
