Enabling creative schools – Education Futures Podcast

In the latest episode of the Education Futures Podcast, Kelly and John Moravec share highlights from their recent #EFReads Facebook/Twitter book club discussion of Sir Ken Robinson’s Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That’s Transforming Education. They connect major themes from the conversation to an interactive exercise to sketch what schools are for and what curricular experiences should be embedded so that all students in all grades receive what they need for successful futures.

Introducing the Education Futures Podcast

Welcome to the Education Futures Podcast, a new series curated by John Moravec and Kelly Killorn-Moravec.

What is your vision of the future of education? What stories do you have to share? What great examples and practices already exist? In this podcast, we share what we have learned, connect with others, and interview thought leaders who provoke us to think differently in education and human development.

Listen to a preview trailer here:

Voices we will interview include top authors and thought leaders in the realm of education, and we will weave in our own thoughts and opinions, too. Your participation is invited! Email your stories to the hosts at info@educationfutures.com.

New episodes will be released every two weeks, beginning August 25, with our first episode on unintended consequences in Utah and Florida. Here’s how to follow along:
