THE FUTURE OF LEARNING

I just returned from a most enriching summer professional development experience at Harvard University. This institute was designed to help educators prepare students for the future. We explored how globalization, the digital revolution, and advances in neuroscience are transforming education. I was privileged to be in this exploration with educators from all over our beautiful planet.  It was exquisite to learn from world-renowned  Harvard Graduate School of Education faculty and leading researchers and practitioners from around the world.

~ I am incredibly grateful to Veronica Boix Mansilla, Howard Gardner and David Perkins for leading this institute  brilliantly. This was a breathtaking moment in time that  I will truly treasure.  The intellectual stimulation allowed for the participants to ponder these transformative statements as we learned…”I used to think….and now I think….”  We filled in the blanks as we progressed together.  What a wonderful way to learn…exploring thought provoking through lines.  I returned home with clear answers, and with generative questions to explore as I move into the  future of learning.
