At the Future of Learning institute this held at Harvard University we asked participants to consider the learner of the future. As part of the process to design a new school vision, mission and learning principles, learners from my school kindly shared their thoughts in response to this concept. I wonder how these connect with perspectives from learners around the world? I would welcome some comments that could stretch the minds of the young people in this video. .

Who is the learner of the future?

What educational book are you currently reading?
Currently I am reading ‘Creating Innovators’ by Tony Wagner which was a gift from Rod Rock, a good friend, talented educator, thinker and leader. Other than being a thought provoking book it also uses a Microsoft Tag app for readers to access video content. If you are interested in contributing to a research project exploring innovative learning and teaching practices then you may wish to take a look at http://www.itlresearch.com/. I am wondering what other influential books those who are interested in education are currently reading? Also how much time are teachers and school leaders giving to professional reading?
What processes do we need to go through to figure out what students should learn?
