A Practical Map for School Change: Strategies, Considerations, and Applications for Authentic Innovation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Successful public charter schools have embraced innovation, entrepreneurship and 21st century learning throughout the past decade. For many of us, though, our schools have strongly established traditions, expectations and curriculum that are slow to embrace change. We are in a time of global transition, but how do we effectively navigate cultural and social expectations while meeting the needs of learners in the digital age? How can we generate real change in our schools when our local and national culture is steeped in 20th century educational traditions and benchmarks? In this session, you will take away applied examples for making the case, stimulating and building resonance for change in your school. You will pick up proven tactics that will help you create and support programming for integrated 21st century learning, change existing faculty mindsets and practices and meet expectations of parents and colleges.
