Description

The Future Skills Institute is 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 used 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!

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

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." -- SMUS Teacher

"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." -- West Point Grey Academy Teacher
