Go Forth and Be Bold: Educating for the Future
Engage and connect : Forum
Wisdom informs innovation; the latter simply cannot exist without the former. In the push for future-focused schools, we need to take an honest look at the strategies and practices of our past. Which highly effective strategies need to accompany us on the path forward? Which practices never worked to begin with, and need to go the way of the floppy disk? The world’s best educators understand that learning is king, growth is queen, and “cool” is the court jester. The jester is technology, and the jester has value, but we shouldn’t put the jester in charge of the kingdom. The elite skills of our predecessors need a place in classrooms of the future. Weston Kieschnick will share his findings from the best-selling book Bold School, after spending decades coaching some of the most talented educators from all 50 states and more than 30 countries around the world. He will offer participants practical strategies for immediate implementation, while demonstrating how masters of pedagogy and technology try early, fail often, and pursue excellence with joy to create bold, blended learning experiences that work.
