August 26, 2010:Education Nation: Six Leading Edges of Innovation in Our Schools


Presenter: Milton Chen, senior fellow, The George Lucas Educational Foundation and Anthony Armstrong, a middle school teacher and member of the foundation's National Advisory Council

Host: Grace Rubenstein, senior producer, Edutopia

Audience: Ideal for educators who want a bird's-eye view of the leading edges of change in education, plus practical tips for how to bring some of these innovations to your classroom.

Description: We are living in a time ripe for powerful educational change. We have the tools, the passion, the political will and -- most importantly -- the shared belief that we can and must do better to help our children become creative, capable competitors and contributors in the world. In this session, Milton Chen, senior fellow of the George Lucas Educational Foundation, paints a picture of what this transformation could look like. Jumping off from his hot-off-the-presses book, Education Nation, he outlines six leading edges of innovation in our schools, ranging from where and when children learn to who their teachers are. And he points to real-world examples of the pioneering work being done on these educational frontiers.

Joining Milton is the impressively innovative Anthony Armstrong, a middle school teacher and member of the foundation's National Advisory Council, who uses free technology tools and rigorous discussions to challenge his students. Anthony shares his best practices and advice and shows what this new Education Nation looks like in a real classroom.
