Uncommon Learning: Creating Schools That Work for Kids

Presented by Eric Sheninger, Senior Fellow – International Center for Leadership in Education
Sponsored by Learning Bird | Co-hosted by


Schools traditionally have been designed to work well for adults, but the conventional school design hasn’t always served our learners. Students today need to be empowered to take ownership of their learning in relevant and meaningful ways to prepare them for a constantly evolving world.

In this recorded webinar, Eric Sheninger explored how to cultivate shared ownership, respect, and trust – creating a school learning culture that students value and to which they want to belong in the digital age. Eric presented a variety of successful strategies and initiatives implemented at schools with a focus on the purposeful integration of technology, a redefinition of learning spaces, personalized learning, and the whole child.

This recorded session will help you understand how transform your own school into a place that is aligned with the way students live and learn today. He will field questions from attendees after his presentation. This recorded webinar will benefit all K-12 educators and leaders, including those in higher education.

Join the Leadership 3.0 community to participate in online discussions with peers, for invitations to upcoming webinars, to view past webinar recordings, to take a quiz and receive a CE certificate for a past webinar, and for access to more resources.
