Join Be Social Change & the Centre for Social Innovation for:
The Future of Education: New Models for 21st Century Learning
The Future of Education is before us. Around the world and here at home, entrepreneurs and educators are redefining education with democratized learning models, custom education pathways, and innovative methods for students to learn 21st century skills. We are entering a new education paradigm - one that is hyper-focused on learning by doing, skill building for a new economy, and accessibility via online and offline community platforms.
On January 23rd, join us for an evening of discussion and engagement with the leaders of tomorrow (and today) who are crafting alternative models for 21st century learning. We’ll hear from entrepreneurs and disruptors who are thinking deeply about how we learn and why we need new and supplemental educational programming to teach valuable skills for a changing global workforce.
