A Message From The Future For The Educators Of Today
de Mark Wagner
Sobre o livro
School change is never easy, but it is necessary to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s world.
Our job as educators is no longer to help students memorize a few things they might need someday. Our job is to help students access and use information in ways that are meaningful to them—and to others. This doesn’t mean students don't need schools or teachers; kids need educators as their guides now more than ever.It does mean the priorities and processes of education must change.
InMore Now, EdTechTeam Founder,Mark Wagner, PhD, explores the six essential elements of effective school change: courageous leaders, empowered teachers, student agency, inspiring spaces, robust infrastructure, and engaged communities. You’ll learn from educational leaders, teachers, and technologists how you can make each of these essential elements part of your school or district culture—starting now.
It’s time to “dream out loud” and be “an architect of the possible” in creating the future students need.
We can’t afford to wait.
