This learning event is right for you if you are you are a school leader looking for tools to better understand the impact of Covid-19 as a catalyst for innovation in your school.
Part I: Surveying the landscape
We will explore some of the areas of forced innovation that have arisen from Covid-19 and share some of the fascinating innovations that schools and learning ecosystems around the world have implemented. This will allow us to better understand what is possible and you will be asked to reflect on some of the innovations you may wish to implement.
Part II: Creating the culture
This session will provide you with some tools and strategies you can use to put agile design at the heart of your culture and to incubate some of the innovations you would like to see in your school.
Both webinars will take a practical approach to 'pragmaptopian' innovation and support you in developing an agile roadmap moving forward.
