On October 30, 2018 Future Ready Schools® (FRS) held a webinar that was part of its Leadership Hub, a one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders.
In this webinar, Pam Moran and Ira Socol, two authors of Timeless Learning: How Imagination, Observation, and Zero-based Thinking Change Schools, discussed how developing a culture of invention and innovation creates new pathways to activate creativity, voice, agency, and influence in all young people.

The authors discussed:
- “Timeless learning” and why should educators learn more about the timeless design principles
- How change in schools can create a culture of invention and innovation
- The way they see education evolving to utilize the technologies of immersive environments as accelerators of learning
