Closing Session Keynote: The Future of Education: An Invitation to Radically Dream
Saturday, April 1, 2023
3:05 – 4:30 PM ET  

The education system is broken, and we've known it for a long time. Yet, even after a full year out of schools due to the pandemic, we are still clinging to an archaic system. Urgency, fear, and the pull of the dominant paradigm of schooling have led many educators toward a feverish return to the status quo—reducing schooling experiences to addressing perceived student deficits and learning loss. In this talk, we explore what it could look like to make a fundamental mindset shift and capitalize on the transformative chance to dream. What if we moved from how we will deal with the perceived loss of learning to questions about how to envision the future of learning? What if we didn't just follow the guidance of curriculum developers and policymakers but took lessons from the legacies of abolitionists and freedom fighters? What if we started to radically dream? Join us for a conversation about the meaning of radical dreaming, its importance, and how it could help us usher in a new education future.
