[Free Webinar] Future Skills, Future Schools, Future Libraries
with Karen Bonanno, National Director, Eduwebinar

 

This last year has been a challenging year across many sectors of society, including education. The COVID-19 pandemic has probably been the most disruptive event to global education systems in history, forcing many schools into a ‘crisis-schooling’ situation. The pandemic has accelerated the already-existing challenges to education and stimulated the discussion, debates and deliberations about a need for change.

 

This free webinar will explore –
key drivers for future skills change,
critical skills that our students will need to be future-ready,
scenarios for future schooling, and
implications for school libraries.

 

From this webinar you will be able to:

  • Identify relevant future work skills for student success and curriculum connections.
  • Consider the implications of the changing schooling landscape on the future teaching workforce.
  • Explore how you can situate yourself in these futures and how well prepared you are to embrace the opportunities.
