Trends for the 21st Century: Preparing for the Schools of Tomorrow
Whether we look at rapidly shifting demographics, constantly emerging technologies, the way we learn or the way we lead, K-12 schools are experiencing dramatic changes that will have lasting effects on young people, and ultimately, the nation as a whole. This webinar, based on futurist Gary Marx's book Twenty-One Trends for the 21st Century, offers a deeper understanding of impending challenges and opportunities to prepare educators for the schools of tomorrow. Marx provides concrete strategies for school and district leaders to:
  • Engage students, staff, and colleagues in active learning and problem-solving skills,
  • Build adaptability and resilience in leadership roles,
  • Keep in touch with rapidly changing institutions and communities,
  • Understand and plan for the effects of societal development, and
  • Release ingenuity and creativity in others.

ESSA Explained: Inside the Nation's New K-12 Law
The Every Student Succeeds Act, signed into law in December, is poised to shake up the landscape for states and districts on everything from school accountability to testing, teacher policy, and funding. This latest version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act shifts significant K-12 responsibility away from the federal level. States will set their own academic goals for students, within certain federal boundaries, and have more control over how to turn around low-performing schools. But there are plenty of other changes to come, and regulations under the law are still being hammered out, while members of Congress watch the rollout, many of them looking to keep the U.S. Department of Education on a tight leash. Join members of the Education Week government and policy staff for a conversation about key aspects of ESSA and what's in store for state and district leaders.
