Description

The Future Skills Institutes are designed to empower educators to build classrooms of the future. This action-packed, hands-on professional development experience will provide educators with immediately applicable methods and tools that can be use in the classroom or school to build creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills in students. Participants will meet other innovative educators and walk away with a unit plan for their classroom that embeds design thinking, entrepreneurship, global mindfulness and innovation into your daily routines.

The Future Skills Institutes are also the first step towards becoming a Certified Future Skills Designer -- all participants receive their level 1 and 2 Future Skills Designer badges! This program is offered in partnership with the Scarsdale Teachers Institute, and participants are also eligible for CTLE credits in New York State.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the key tenets of design thinking, entrepreneurship, global mindfulness and innovation and learn methods for building these skills/mindsets in students.
  • Learn and apply actionable methods for ideation & collaboration and experiment with using these methods with students
  • Design a student-directed learning experience that develops critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication in students
  • Learn about best practices for assessing project-based learning and design an assessment tool that you can use in your classroom to drive student learning and build core competencies

This Program Is For You If:

  • You are an educator with a passion for creating engaging, meaningful learning experiences
  • You want to learn how to use design thinking to empower student innovation
  • You want to learn how to connect innovation to your subject area

Immediately Actionable PD:

All participants walk away with repeatable methods and tools that they can use in the classroom with students, as well as a plan of action to implement their learning right away. You will learn by doing, and do the work of planning as part of the session!

What Participants are Saying:

"I learned and practiced highly applicable skills, I liked that the facilitators were teachers and drew on their own experience."

"I was so engaged and learned so much about the challenge that we were tackling! My brain hurts in a good way. I love that we learned by doing and actually tried out the design process, instead of just listening to someone explain to us about how it worked."
