Future of Education series continues this week

The final speaker in the Future of Education Speaker Series is coming to Antioch College’s Herndon Gallery (South Hall) next Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Matt Fischer will be coming to speak with our community. If you are available, we would love to have you join us. I have seen him do a similar presentation to educators in the past and found it to be a very positive and hopeful message that sparks deep reflection about learning in the 21st Century. Matt’s presentations have received rave reviews from teachers and administrators alike.

Matt will be unique in the series, given that he will be the first speaker who has a background outside of academia. This will give our community a different perspective about the future our kids are facing after high school and college. As a master of creativity in the advertising world, Matt has a front line perspective on the 21st Century skills needed to pursue the future our kids imagine for themselves.

I believe Matt’s presentation will be greatly relevant to the future of education. This is one you will not want to miss.

*Though these events have been well attended, we have not had a lot of our current parents or future parents in attendance. If you are a parent of a student or future student, please attend and bring the kids! We really need your perspective as part of the 2020 process.
