Why we must reboot our schools

Ed Elements in the News

Baby Boomers were raised in an analog world and experienced the dawn of a digital domain.

Millennials and Generation Xers grew up with immediate access to information, with connections and comfort engaging online with people across the world. It’s the difference akin to watching a movie on VHS versus streaming it on Netflix. 

If we can reorganize our schools to better mirror our day-to-day lives, formal learning will become more relevant and desirable to our students, and the school environment as a workplace will become more appealing to our teachers.

To respond to the changing expectations of the young digitally native workforce, many companies have shifted to flat organizations, flexible hours and work locations, and integrated work-life environments. Public schools, however, have not. That is hurting both teachers and learners.
