Learning Transformed:
8 Keys to Designing Tomorrow's Schools, Today

With the vast education inequities that have existed for centuries, all that is known about how students learn, and the predictions regarding the world that our students will face tomorrow, using a traditional one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning is educational malpractice. Built on the foundation of leadership and school culture, the presenter’s redesigned learning experience fundamentally shifts the teaching and learning paradigm to one that is personal, is grounded in evidence, leverages technology, transforms the spaces in which learning occurs, helps educators grow professionally, promotes collaboration with the community, and, ultimately, ensures the sustainability of the system as a whole. Based on ASCD’s best selling book, Learning Transformed: 8 Keys to Designing Tomorrow’s Schools Today, this workshop will dissect these eight keys, which each serve as a puzzle piece for redesigning the learning experience. Learn how to unlock tomorrow’s schools so that today’s modern learners leave ready to create new industries, find new cures, and solve world problems. You are part of the solution!
