The world continues to change at a rapid rate. Have schools kept up with the rate of change? What needs to stay the same in schools? What ought to change? We are passionate about ensuring schools are preparing students for the world they already inhabit and the world they will inhabit. We will share Principia’s continuing journey into making school more relevant, engaging and authentic for the students. The presentation will examine how the forces of globalization are impacting on schools and highlight several key areas that Principia, a 120-year-old college prep school, and other schools around the world have embraced to transform schools to be more student-centered so that each child can unleash their unlimited potential. You will be taken through the challenges of change, how classrooms can evolve, what professional development looks like and how to build a culture of innovation. This insightful presentation will be for leaders and teachers who believe that the way we do schooling needs to radically shift. You will leave with insights into what can be done to inspire change and engage a school community on a journey of continuous improvement to ensure we can begin to shift the way our children experience school.
