  • 2. Futurist
    Radical views
    Transform education

    Train students to be factory workers
    Managed by bell schedules
    Transported en masse by busses
    Inflexible curriculum

    Diversify our approach
    Treat students as individuals
    Accept complex nature of our students’ lives
    Teach hands-on skills
    Bring experts into the classroom
  • 5. Stretch our thinking
    Schools open 24 hrs a day
    Students start school as early as age 2 or 3
    Students start school as late as age 7 or 8
    Teaching should not be a life-long career
    Teachers should get other jobs to supplement their pedagogy
  • 6. Change is inevitable
    Change is happening all around us
    We can embrace the change or fight it
    We need to prepare students for their futures
    Let’s be proactive
    Embrace the revolution!
