A Network Connecting School Leaders From Around The Globe
The 5 school districts on the North Fork will be hosting an evening forum facilitated by Ian Jukes. He will use a format based on his new book Living on the Future Edge (*see below) to lead a dialogue entitled, Educating the 21st Century Student, Preserving Our Past, Finding Our Future. The 90 minute session begins at 6:30 p.m. (following a brief 30 minute light refreshment period).
Preserving the Past, Finding the Future:A Community Forum Led by Ian Jukes
“In today's world we face technological applications in daily living the likes of which, even a few short years ago, would have been inconceivable. This is a digital age, with interactive devices storing and recording our life experience and containing overwhelming amounts of knowledge. This has become the essence of life in the 21st Century, but more specifically the lives of our children. As students, they have a whole new way of thinking and learning that many educators are unable to understand, and that most schools are unable to accommodate.” --from The 21st Century Fluency Project
Please join us for an important and unique event—on Monday, March 21st, where North Fork school districts and representatives from our communities will come together to grapple with these questions:
· How do we accommodate the digital age in our schools?
· How do we preserve the character of our tight knit towns while still preparing our students to be productive participants in a global community?
· How do we do update our schools to best serve our children, even in these fiscally challenging times?
In order to come up with optimal solutions, we’re asking the whole community to participate. The focus of this forum is to create a rich dialogue where all voices are heard—business, civic, and spiritual leaders; teachers, students, and parents; and all those who are concerned about the future of our schools. Nationally renowned guest presenter Ian Jukes, founder of The 21st Century Fluency Project, will facilitate the discussion and encourage us all to find ways to innovate, engage, and inspire.
