Over the course of the last decade, One World has been connecting students and educators from across the world to learn with and from one another as we all seek to understand our increasingly complex world with a view to preparing ourselves for the unprecedented opportunities and challenges of the 21st century. 

On Tuesday, December 7th, One World is being joined by Professor Fernando Reimers, the Ford Foundation Professor of the Practice in International Education and Director of the Global Education Innovation who will present his paper, Educating for the Fourth Industrial Revolution where he will outline the Five Principles needed to educate for a world of rapid technological change.

The webcast will be presented in two parts: Starting with Professor Reimers’ Five Principles followed by a working session to define and build a number of One World Communities of Learning where we will work together with educators from across the globe to identify education projects and teams that want to work together across borders. Teams will be created on this day and will meet periodically with One World to advance the project and then reconvene with Professor Reimers in June 3, 2022 to evaluate the results of the projects undertaken.

All Educator Members will be eligible to participate. Become a member today!
