It’s hard to believe, but it’s been more than a week since we closed our 2014 Summit.  With the Summit done, it’s time to introduce our Ed2S Fellows for 2014. Drumroll please… These names represent an amazing group of educators with experience from all different sectors within (public, private, charter, informal).  It was an honor to work with them during the Summit and we are so excited for the great work they did this year.  Below their names is the Fellowship Mission, Vision and Values that they collaboratively created.  Like I said – an awesome cohort!

Fellowship Mission, Vision and Values

We believe/understand….

  • Our young people are uniquely equipped to be the change-agents that our world so desperately needs
  • Education is the key lever to create a more just, healthy, and sustainable world
  • Current educational practices are failing to serve young people in the context of our rapidly changing world
  • Transforming education requires the engagement of all stakeholders: community, parents, learners, educators, leaders

So we will, in concert with others…

  • Develop, capture, and promote practices that unleash and nurture the potential of learners and educators
  • Break through stereotypes to allow learners to see themselves and be seen as they truly are
  • Hold each other accountable to our ideals, vision, and new ways of thinking

In order to…

  • Catalyze a paradigm shift that transforms the current industrial model of schools into a dramatically different model that will realize the world we know is possible
