Transform.Ed Briefing #51
Inside the Briefing: Capturing the zeitgeist of education as we turn our gaze towards 2024!
With only three days remaining in the year, we know what you are thinking. This is the last one for 2023, but this is just not another briefing! 2023 was a year of changes - some evoking despair, while others instilling hope. Amidst this eclectic mix of emotions, we wanted to reflect on our journey as a community that we have been able to build through the Transform.Ed Briefing.
Revamped and relaunched in June, the briefing helped us reach educators directly. Last week, we sent out our 50th edition. We explored a multitude of themes in the last few months, ranging from aspects of social-emotional learning, the concept of learners’ agency, peace education, education for sustainable development, resilient education, special education, and early childhood education to the need for professional development and communities, and many more!
We are hopeful that the insights, ideas, and resources we shared through this briefing not only mirrored the essence of education this year but also left a meaningful impact on your lives, possibly creating numerous personal véjà du moments for each one of you!
With a new year on the horizon, we continue to look forward to your support, thoughts and experiences. Share them with your global peers in the comments below or join the conversation on the Global Citizenship Foundation’s Educational Leadership Community, exclusively dedicated to educators worldwide.
