The Future of Education: Innovation in K-12 Learning

What would our education system look like if students could create their own learning experience? How can educators promote collaborative learning environments that foster teamwork and spark creativity? What can we do collectively to ensure that each student builds relevant skills for the twenty-first century?

Join us on March 7th as we explore how K-12 schools and programs are changing to prepare students for the world ahead. We’ll hear from educators, systems thinkers, and disruptors who are adapting to teach 21st century skills while reimagining the entire educational experience. We'll question how the public and private sectors along with schools can work together to create a more cohesive learning experience for students.

This event is the second in a three part series on the Future of Education. Our first event looked at Alternative Models for 21st Century Learning and the third event will explore the Intersection of Technology and Education.
