From Common Core to Kahn Academy, start-ups to SmartBoards, the boundaries of what we consider education, how it's defined and very metrics of success are more fluid and flexible than ever before. Rarely does an opportunity exist to so openly and creatively explore how an entire industry will define itself. Where will the balance between bottom line and learning outcome be found? Will teachers, parents, innovators, policy makers, and even corporations strive to educate 2 billion children, or one child, two billion times.
Rethink Learning NYC is a collective these stakeholders engaging in transparency building, collaboration-creating, and future-making conversations that will define how each sector can engage not individually, but as participants in a new ecosystem of education. Our goal is to learn from each other to create a stronger, more coordinated education environment.
Oh. And if there's a good beer or whiskey (or chocolate milk for the young'uns) in hand while we do it, all the better.
