Schedule for 2014 Fellows Summit

Monday, June 30th – Vision and Purpose

The vision: Transforming education

AM: How has the world changed? What should education look like in the 21st century?

  • Our world needs saving and education is the key lever to pull if we want to make our world more free, just, equal, healthy, and sustainable.
  • The industrial model of education is no longer appropriate for the 21st century and won’t help us create the world we want to see.
  • Transforming schools to meet the demands of the 21st century must involve dismantling and reimagining the industrial model to refocus school on using knowledge to solve real-world problems.
