#EdJourney: A Roadmap to the Future of Education takes a fresh look at our nation’s schools, eschewing the negativity so often found in the world of education today. While on my solo road trip across the United States I discovered that there are brushfires of innovation burning brightly in many K-12 schools. I interviewed more than 600 teachers, administrators, students, parents, and trustees to find out what innovations are succeeding—and discover how others can follow their example.
To help create an environment that will encourage innovation, #EdJourney puts the focus on four key questions:
- What new learning strategies are schools implementing to prepare our students for their future rather than for our past?
- How do teachers and administrators manage the transition to new types of teaching and learning?
- What are the key obstacles to shifting away from the assembly line model of education?
- How can we all leverage the lessons of success from the most innovative schools?
This is a guide to help educators make sure their schools are ready for the future. Filled with voices from fellow educators from around the country and based on the findings from the latest education research, #EdJourney maps out how administrators and teachers can embrace the innovation process that schools and learners need right now.
