NewSchools Venture Fund presents ReimaginED, a 50 slide overview of the present and future of education.

From TED talk playlists to government speeches, everyone agrees: education is changing. Exactly how, why, or what it all means is still up for debate. Are the low United States PISA scores a sign of stagnation or creativity? Does technology replace or enhance face to face interaction? Are we trying to teach skills, concepts, or learning mindsets?

At NewSchools, we’d like to set the stage differently, in the context of the ground up innovation already happening. While some see the systemic challenges facing us as signs of a depressed age or solemn future, we see it as a call to action. The time is now to re-imagine our education system, and the landscape that’s developed over the last several years offers fertile ground for new approaches.

Just what are the challenges facing our nation, and what are problem solvers doing to keep training the next generation to be the best and brightest? Find out in Re-imagined, a 50 slide overview of the present and future of education.

We have teach back session for every kid on Camera to ensure perfect mastery of subject before it is taught in class making our kids have a superior feeling in class. We teach 2-3 standards higher in core subjects like English Grammar and Maths which helps our kids to rank in Olympiad Exams. Parents give 100% Fees and Teachers are putting 100% effort to get 100% results from students. All our kids are high performers in school. Every parent wants to give the best education to their child and we have an over flow of children who are coming from far of places where parents are spending Rs 400 per day on travelling 5 - 15 kms for tuition's and ready to follow all our strict terms and conditions for our service delivery.

    Lise Regan says: 'This begins to bring the issue of economic inequality to light, and the role of technology in balancing the scale–but it doesn’t mention the exploding Latino and English language learner (ELL) student population, the fastest-growing segment of preK-12, and the group with the largest economic, technology, and academic achievement gaps! These kids are our nation’s future. The needs of Hispanics and ELLs and their families must be a central part of the dialog to reimagine education and the use of technology to level the playing field: instruction, assessment, professional development, and family engagement.'

    I agree - this deck is just a start! And we have been investing to support this mission in companies like ELLevationEducation.com
