The Learning Ecosystem of the Future

  • Date:Tuesday, November 2
  • Time:1:00 PM - 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: If, for a moment, we could jettison real or perceived roadblocks about how to best “do school”, and paint from a blank canvas, how might we reimagine formal schooling from the vantage point of doing what research tells us works, and what we know to be engaging, relevant, equitable, and healthy? This workshop brings together a futurist and experts in education, equity and diversity, human health, and school planning for a lively journey into uncharted waters. Our team will fast-forward participants decades into the future to co-create, with workshop participants, the learning journey and the learning ecosystems for several fictious students from diverse backgrounds. We will then work together to bring that imagined future back to today and discuss how it might inform our current reality and the design of learning environments. This workshop promises to be engaging and mind-bending. Our aim is to transform the audience into inspired agents of change.
