Waterloo Global Science Initiative Equinox Summit: Education 2030.
A humorous look at worst and best practices. We’ll start with anecdotes
of bad experiences with curriculum, teaching and learning practices,
then move on to some of the best solutions ever seen. Remember, failure
is not an obstacle but an open door to better practice.
This episode of The Agenda will examine the question of whether internet creates conditions which will allow for much more of learning to take place outside of traditional classrooms.
A no-holds-barred examination of the end-goals of education. Higher education establishments and changing industry requirements (especially new industries) are moving the goalposts for the outcomes of K-12 education. Is the goal to create people who will do good and make the world a better place?
A discussion between students who dared to strive for better and hacked their education to get there. They talk about their motivations, experiences, the reaction of those around them and the difference it has (or perhaps hasn’t) made to their lives.
This multidisciplinary panel will draw from the themes explored in the Benchmark videos to explore the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead when we envision high school education in 2030. Do we reform, redesign or reinvent? What are the critical questions that we need to be asking?
