Future-focused learning is about more than just technology and digital skills—it’s about shifting your practice in order to take the great work you are already doing as an educator and make it exceptional.
This is the book that will transform your practice in the best ways possible.
10 Essential Shifts of Everyday Practice
Lee Watanabe-Crockett introduces a whole new methodology for embracing student-centered learning, transforming classrooms, building critical skills, and improving outcomes in the bestselling book Future-Focused Learning: 10 Essential Shifts of Everyday Practice. The product of over 10 years of work with global schools, Future-Focused Learning introduces 10 core shifts of practice you can apply to your teaching right now, no matter your curriculum or pedagogy.
In this book, you’ll explore over 50 specific examples of classroom activities called “micro-shifts” that make the larger shifts in practice simple to achieve on your own or as a collective group. In addition, you’ll learn how to connect the Essential Fluencies to these shifts of practice in order to develop students’ key 21st-century skills and higher-order thinking. If you’ve been looking for the best way to foster student-centered instruction in the classroom and support authentic modern learning outcomes, this is the only book you need.
At last, a book that bridges the gap between the realization that education must change and the real work of transforming it. Future-Focused Learning provides a clear guide for building teacher capacity.
Any teacher, from beginner to veteran, will find practical and proven ideas for invigorating their teaching and enlivening student learning.
Future-Focused Learning is a rare book that reads like a story but is actually a field guide for transforming schools. Lee’s work deals with the systemic issues inherent when inventing new institutional forms, social practices, and skills, a process we badly need in education.
Lee has found a way to do what all the gurus from the era of Bloom’s taxonomy haven’t achieved—alter teaching practice to reach the upper layers of the taxonomy.
