We Need to Teach into the Unknown…

Grant Lichtman shares his insights about the current changes occurring in education, based on his decades-long passion for transformational education. “Change in education is not hard. It’s uncomfortable and complicated, but it’s not hard. I ask you to consider that.” Of particular note is Lichtman’s concept of the new education ecosystem, globally based, which he terms the “cognitosphere” – a system of knowledge creation and management that reflects the knowledge economy in which we are now immersed. “I hate the term 21st century skills,” Lichtman remarks. “These are recurring skills to which we need to return. I did not visit one school of which John Dewey would not be proud.” This is a constructive, thoughtful, engaging presentation that is worth 15 minutes of your time.
