“In 20 years, I expect education to be problem-solving stations. Students will use inquiry to solve real world problems. Problem and project-based learning will replace memorization and regurgitation of facts that get forgotten during the summer slide […] In 20 years, I want to see students exploring their learning possibilities, taking risks to find hard answers, and truly taking ownership of their learning.”
