Time for Conversation About a New World in Education

As the learning environment changes, teachers and administrators need to learn new ways of providing instruction, leveraging technology and assessing learning. Ohio educators and administrators recently came together, along with national experts and vendors, to participate in a lab that offered opportunities to envision a new future for education. Should you be starting similar conversations in your school district?

Technology is driving the potential for disruptive change in education. Ensuring that this change is minimally disruptive, and positive, for all involved—students, teachers, administrators, parents and community—will require conversation and collaboration. While much can be learned from the experiences of others, like this group in Ohio, each district is different. Now is the time to begin drawing together your stakeholders for conversations about what the future of education might look like for your students.
