8 Keys to Designing Tomorrow's Schools, Today
Course Moderators: Thomas C. Murray and Eric Sheninger
With all that we know about how students learn, the nature of the world they will face after graduation, and the educational inequities that have existed for centuries, maintaining a traditional, one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning is tantamount to instructional malpractice.Course creators and co-authors Eric C. Sheninger and Thomas C. Murray guide participants through nine unique modules, which outline their eight keys—each a piece of a puzzle for transforming the K–12 education system of teaching and learning—to intentionally design tomorrow’s schools so today’s learners are prepared for success and stand ready to create new industries, find new cures, and solve world problems.
Module 1: Vision for Change
Module 2: Creating a Culture of Innovation
