Transform.Ed Briefing #27
Inside the Briefing: From lessons in advancing GCED and SDGs to a compelling movie about two determined mothers who risked everything to make a difference in education and much more!
Last week when we asked our subscribers about what they expect from the parents. 40% responded that they expect parents to recognize the importance or need for balanced learning to ensure holistic development of learners. If only parents realize… all study and no play will make Noah or Aria a dull child!
The question then is, what actions can we take — as educators, institutions, and key stakeholders — to enable parents to recognize this? We would love to hear your ideas or initiatives that are directed at helping parents set healthy expectations from education and be parties to transforming education for human and planetary flourishing!
