Beyond Grades, Walls and Online Learning : The Future of Education in a Freelance World

Portland Design Week - October 6, 2014

Presenters: Meredith Goddard & Renee Jenkinson (Catlin Gabel School)

There are incredible opportunities for learning, making and skill development beyond grades, walls, and online learning. Let's make sure the skills that are sought by employers in the future are taught in classrooms today. Let's make sure that the incentive systems used in schools reflect incentive systems in the business world. Most of all, let's liberate students from the confines of our own educational experiences so that they experience a richer, skill-based, authentic, open, and collaborative learning environment.
