As many of you know, I formally resigned my position at Francis Parker School this spring after almost a decade and a half in a variety of leadership positions. I hope to continue my association with Parker, which my great aunt and uncle founded 100 years ago, in informal ways. For now, and following on my rather unique sabbatical research trip last fall, the future is both busy and exciting.
I have had a hectic spring speaking to, and working with, hundreds of educational leaders around the country as we define what the future of learning looks like and how we get there. I am also deep into the writing of my next book that will synthesize the key messages of my journey last fall, and the input and knowledge of the educational leaders with whom I have the privilege of working.
I am honored to announce that I have been named a Senior Fellow of The Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence in Memphis. I will remain in San Diego, but a great deal of my time will be spent expanding the national, and indeed international, reach and program of this marvelous public-private educational partnership. We envision a bold and unique array of ways for educators to connect, share, learn, and develop transformational learning practices that will better equip our students for the rapidly changing world of their futures.
I am also pleased to announce that I have been asked to work with a partnership between the National Business Officers Association (NBOA) and the Online School for Girls in developing cutting edge collaborative blended learning programs aimed at re-imagining the financial and operating sustainability of independent schools. More on this will be announced by the fall.
My primary release points for news, links, contact information, and resources continues to be here on my blog site and on Twitter at @GrantLichtman
I hope you will let me know how I can help you, your school, or your organization as I pursue my decades-long passion of developing a truly post-industrial age system of K-12 education.
