Why Educators Are Better Together
Micro schools, team taught classes, design thinking practices. In this episode, why it’s so crucial for educators to learn from each other. Tom Vander Ark, CEO of Getting Smart and author of Better Together, joins Steelcase WorkSpace Futures researchers Aileen Strickland-McGee and Gaby Scarritt for a discussion centered around the power of networking in education.
Beyond the Lesson Plan
In recent years, designing classrooms and lesson plans to support student engagement and wellbeing has been at the forefront. Today’s crisis has only accelerated educational institutions in prioritizing the physical, cognitive and emotional safety of students and teachers across learning environments – whether physical or remote.
In our latest webinar, Beyond the Lesson Plan, Jeff Selingo and a panel of experts discuss why wellbeing is fundamental in education and how schools can better support the flourishing of educators and students today.
