Ted Dintersmith, the author of the book What School Could Be, joins us to start the 2022 Entrepreneurship in Education webinar series.
In this webinar, we will discuss some of the insights Ted found touring American schools. Firstly, he set out to raise awareness of the need to innovate education to prepare students for an ever-changing world. However, he found that many teachers were already on the case.
“All across the country, he met teachers in ordinary settings doing extraordinary things. They were creating innovative classrooms where children learn deeply and joyously as they gain purpose, agency, essential skillsets and mindsets, and real knowledge.”
How are these entrepreneurial and innovative educators making changes despite the system they are working in? What is the role entrepreneurship could play in any classroom? How can entrepreneurship take innovation to the next level?
In the conversation, we will uncover how to make small changes to how we teach our students. We also hope to hear from the audience about their experiences and challenges in bringing innovation and entrepreneurial thinking to the classroom.
