Keep the Learning Going: The Future Skills PLC

During the Future Skills Institute, you will be building a prototype of a learning experience for students. We want to help you make that prototype a reality and support you as you put your learning into action through the Future Skills Professional Learning Community. With the guidance of an expert Future Design School Facilitator and support from a team of other inspired educators who are also experimenting in their classrooms, you will work through an ongoing series of action, reflection and iteration while developing your own skills and competence with the design process.
