Abstract: Dr. Milton Chen, senior fellow and executive director, emeritus at The George Lucas Educational Foundation GLEF , will discuss how school systems are reinventing themselves, focusing on their growing edges of innovation in districts, states, and nations. The Six Edges form the framework of his book, selected as one of the 10 best books of by the American School Board Journal. The Edges address fundamental shifts to our thinking about schooling; ways in which technology is transforming when, where, and how students learn; and roles of teachers and students as teachers form teaching teams with other experts and students take on more responsibility for their own learning. All of these trends call for new leadership from colleges of education for teacher preparation and educator development. Chen will show examples of these practices from Edutopia.
