Designing Schools for The Future  is the theme of 2015. Imagine that it is 2050. The speed, impact and intensity of change have increased in every dimension of our lives. As educational leaders, we need to understand the assumptions, policies and practices that currently shape what we learn and how we learn. Then we have to look ahead and project how schools of the future can relate to the needs, demands and concerns prevalent in 2050.

Institute participants will design a new school, a school that is radically different from the way we now “do school.”  This is more than “thinking out of the box.” It’s about tossing the box aside. Second, teams will consider the components of their new school and decide which components could actually be implemented within the next five years and which ones will take more time. Third, each individual will compose strategies for bringing some of the new ideas into their own school.

We will learn from schools that have challenged what we do and why we do it. We will ask pioneers in other fields to describe their creative process and projections. We will hear from artists, economists, entrepreneurs, futurists, inventors, medical researchers, science fiction writers, technology wizards, urban planers, and venture capitalists. And, of course, educational leaders.

Starting Saturday, July 11th, the Institute will be held at the Walter Reade Theater

(165 W. 65th Street, Plaza Level), starting at 8:00AM.

The SoL Education Partnership has been involved in a two-year project, to explore how systems thinking tools
 and approaches have been incorporated into lessons and curricula used to help students meet some of the Common Core
 State Standards. We are sharing our learnings through a webinar series. These webinars are each one hour in length
and do not assume any background in systems thinking. They are ideal as an introduction, or a review, to the tools and
concepts. They are free but limited in size. You can attend any or all of them and are welcome to invite your colleagues to join you.
 They focus on early reading, mathematical practices, and reading informational texts. For more details and to register,
