On September 21, 2017, the Alliance for Excellent Education and Future Ready Schools® (FRS) held a webinar as part of Future Ready Schools’® Leadership Hub, a one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders.
Having no historical precedent, the current speed of technological breakthroughs has led to the coming age of workplace automation, dramatically altering the world of work that the nation’s students will enter upon high school graduation. With the vast disparities of inequity that have existed for centuries, all that is known about how students learn, and the predictions regarding the world that the students will face tomorrow, utilizing a traditional, one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning is educational malpractice. Built upon the foundation of leadership and school culture, a redesigned learning experience fundamentally shifts the teaching and learning paradigm to one that is personal, while altering the use of authentic assessments, how technology is leveraged, the spaces where learning occurs, the way educators grow professionally, how schools collaborate with the community, and ultimately, the sustainability of the system as a whole.
In this webinar, Tom Murray and Eric Sheninger, coauthors of ASCD’s Learning Transformed: 8 Keys to Designing Tomorrow’s Schools, Today, dissected their eight keys—each of which serves as a puzzle piece for redesigning the learning experience—to unlock tomorrow’s schools so that today’s modern learners leave ready to create new industries, find new cures, and solve world problems.
Panelists also addressed questions submitted by online viewers.
