Innovation, Lectures & Conferences
Innovation Expert Ted Dintersmith and author of the new book, "What School Could Be: Insights and Inspiration from Teachers Across America," leads a conversation, moderated by WBUR’s Meghna Chakrabarti, on how teachers can change the education system in creative, compelling and practical ways to positively impact students and better prepare them to succeed in the innovation economy.
Published in April 2018, "What School Could Be" captures the common elements of the powerful learning experiences that teachers across the U.S. are creating in their classrooms, and the ways leaders are changing schools at scale by establishing the conditions that let teachers and students thrive. The insights of these teachers offer a vision of what school could be, and a model for how to help schools achieve it.
The event is presented by the Brookline High School Innovation Fund, an incubator for new ideas that fosters success for all students by supporting academic innovation at BHS. Founded in 1998 as the 21st Century Fund, the Innovation Fund’s mission is to empower the BHS faculty and community by fostering a culture of innovation and supporting the development of new ideas and initiatives that will enable students to thrive in the new economy.
