What if Schools...

Session 6
Luke Zeller

Please join this conversation to imagine what is possible for schools and classrooms. "What if Schools..." is a prompt to encourage us to think beyond traditional models of school structure and strategy. With each other as resources for innovation, we can develop new lenses through which we can imagine education. The source of innovation is within each other, our experiences, and our ideas. Therefore, please join this opportunity to push for transformation of traditional school models.
