What School Could Be

What School Could Be: A Conversation About the Intersection of Innovation & Education #BHSWhatSchoolCouldBe

Ted Dintersmith, author of What School Could Be: Insights and Inspiration from Teachers Across America, leads a conversation moderated by Meghna Chakrabarti on how teachers can change the education system in creative, compelling and practical ways to positively impact students and better prepare them for the innovation economy. This conversation was sponsored by the Brookline High School InnovationFund. 

We had the good fortune to have about a 20 minute conversation with Ted and came away with some ideas about our school and leadership in the community. One of the big takeaways for me was the question of how to we help students fit with the curriculum rather than making the curriculum fit the students. With our initiative around exploring where Project Based Learning fits, this question will help guide some of our work.
