According to our podcast guest, the future will belong to students who can learn, unlearn, and relearn, …and adapt quickly. Ryan Schaaf is the co-author of the new book, A Brief History of the Future of Education: Learning in the Age of Disruption. Jobs that were formerly mainstays of the economy, such as bookkeeping, customer service, and even law, are now largely digital. A new expectation for the future: frequent career changes for workers to move with the times. Some of the insights Ryan gained researching the book: balancing short-term and long-term skills, survival skills for students, and what teaching will look like in the future.

Developing problem-solvers, creators, collaborators, and innovators is one of keys to our students being prepared for their economically disruptive futures. Ann Kaiser‘s STEM work certainly supports those challenges… Of particular interest: her Engineering Design Process for Your Classroom and Next Generation Science Projects. https://myedexpert.com/vendor/akaiser/
For upper elementary students, Carolyn DeCristofano‘s contributions are simply stellar. From her engineering kit for Rosie Revere to The Sun & The Moon. So appreciative that she has shared these! https://myedexpert.com/vendor/bhstemed/
Social studies teachers! You’ll want to grab Sheila White‘s Historiographies – all Four of Them. These are for around 6-9th grades & free! https://myedexpert.com/vendor/SheilaWhite/
Off-mentioned author/contributor Todd Stanley‘s works fit the bill for developing long-term thinking skills. From “Socrates on Trial” to his “39 Clues” to “The Trial of the Big Bad Wolf,” students will think, create, and collaborate.
Thanks for supporting best practices in teaching and leading!
