Future of education demands innovation

Topics: Future of Learning

Guest post by Byron McCauley

KnowledgeWorks CEO Chad Wick and other National Journal Education Expert bloggers addressed whether or not last week’s USDOE Investing in Innovation (i3) awards invested enough in proposals that bring truly innovative practices to the education system. In “Future of education demands innovation,” Chad argues that the world of learning isn’t going to wait for us to define what education innovation looks like, and he refers to KnowledgeWorks’ ground-breaking 2006-2016 Map of Future Forces in Education and the 2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning to highlight education trends.

Chad participates in this weekly conversation that includes three past and present secretaries of education, several members of Congress, and other national education thought leaders who debate the future of American education. The blog was named by the Washington Post as one of the “Best Education Blogs for 2010.”
