Understanding and responding to the trends impacting the future of your school

Friday 19th June 2020
11:00am - 12:30pm AEST

Every organisation and sector has felt the impacts of COVID-19, yet perhaps none as much as the education sector. Over the last few months entire school communities comprising staff members, students and parents have had to quickly adapt to the new social realities. Yet the future of the education sector is about more than just online learning and the technological shifts. It is also about understanding the attitudes, values and expectations of the diverse generations comprising today’s school communities.

Join us for this short webinar where you’ll hear new research about the trends impacting the future of education, how to lead your school through a crisis and what all this means for educating the emerging generations.

Leading your school through these times of great change
Mark McCrindle - Principal, McCrindle

The times are changing faster than ever – technologically, demographically, socially, and economically. In times of uncertainty, leaders who communicate with confidence are the ones people follow. In this session Mark McCrindle will cover the importance of communication, responding to disruption and how to lead school communities with clarity and resolve in the current and post-COVID-19 context.

The future of education now and towards 2030
Sophie Renton - Research Director

In the ongoing quest for relevance, it is imperative that schools and their boards observe the changes, understand the shifts and respond to the trends shaping their school communities. In this session Sophie Renton will share the key findings from the 2020 Education Future Report, which delves into the role of schools in the community, student and staff wellbeing and the future of post-school pathways.

Educating the next generation of students – Generation Alpha
Ashley Fell - Communications Director

Generation Alpha (born since 2010) are the children of the Millennials and are the first generation to be fully born in the 21st Century. In this session Ashley Fell will share the defining traits of this emerging generation and why understanding them as the future learner, student and employee is key to understanding the future of education.
