Hear our teams interview leading educators, training organizations, and thought leaders about the future of teaching and learning. The emphasis is on the fact that making a difference has become one of the most powerful types of learning, and that making a difference in today’s world is easier and more important than ever. The staff at Getting Smart believes in learning out loud and always standing up for what we are passionate about. This is the result of our hundreds of annual visits to schools where we see high quality teaching and learning in action. Each week in this series asks “What if?” questions to think about what learning and teaching might look like. New learning models, tools, and strategies have contributed to the discovery of small, flexible school models. We invited the audience to ask us questions about leadership and the future of learning, and we tried to answer them. This series is about contributions and young people learning to change the world for the better. The episodes cover a variety of topics related to education, from K-12 to higher education to lifelong learning. A comprehensive and compelling argument for making communities a place of learning for students of all ages. Be patient with all that remains unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves as closed rooms and as books now written in a very foreign language Live the questions now. Exploring New Agreements, New Practices, New Tools, and New Opportunities is supported by the Walton Family Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. We share stories that tell of best practices, lessons learned, and a new generation of educational practices. Our research explores what’s happening, what’s coming, and how schools can prepare for it. We apologize for the big questions and the small answers.
