We know there is an urgent need to change education so all of our children are prepared for their future. I embedded this amazing video below from Prince EA “I just sued the School System!” I believe teachers, administrators, parents, and kids will find that this 6 minute video will help them get the conversations going around WHY they need to change the education system. However, before you watch the video, I suggest you consider HOW you might want to change the idea of “school.” Try what is called “active listening” while watching this video by taking notes to capture your thoughts. Consider these three ideas:
- Most teachers learned how to teach in a 20th century system. How can teachers shift their thinking so they are future focused?
- Technology has impacted every part of our lives. How does technology impact what kids need to learn and the teacher’s role in the future?
- Schools continue to look and operate like they did over 120 years ago. If there was no such thing as school, how might you design learning and the learning environment?
