Future Ready Schools® (FRS) Leadership Institutes are FREE two-day professional learning events designed to support district teams of 3 to 9 people in creating policies, procedures, and practices that empower them to transform teaching and learning in their school and/or district.
The leadership institutes will inspire, invigorate, and inform district teams with a wealth of information and resources that will support their Future Ready efforts. District teams will collaborate to build regional networks of like-minded colleagues, generate feedback on practice, articulate actionable next steps, and identify resources to take their learner-centered strategies to the next level.
Explore the Future of Work (Exclusive to the Seattle Institute)
Institute attendees will hear firsthand from Amazon leaders about the preparation learners need to succeed in the jobs predicted for the future. Additionally, they will receive a behind-the-scenes look at the operations on the Amazon campus, including exclusive access to the Amazon Spheres—an innovative workplace set in nature open only to Amazon guests—and the original Amazon Go store.
The world of work is in a state of flux. Rapidly changing industries combined with increasingly polarized opportunities between high- and low-skill jobs can create considerable anxiety for school and district leaders and the communities they serve. With its acceleration of automation and robotics, Industry 4.0 presents some new and different challenges; yet with those challenges come amazing opportunities.
Enjoy a field trip to the Spheres
The Spheres, home to more than 40,000 plants from the cloud forest regions of over 30 countries, is climatized so both plants and visitors can thrive. You can expect a daytime temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit with 60 percent humidity, and cooler temperatures as the sun sets. Due to this fluctuation, it’s recommended dressing in layers when visiting the Spheres.
This year’s agenda is all-new, interactive, personalized, and team-based! Across two days, attendees will participate in whole group, small group and role-specific sessions each designed to encourage skill development, knowledge sharing and collaborative planning to transform teaching and learning in classrooms across your district.
Note: Team registration is required for the 2019 FRS Leadership Institutes. If you are unable to attend with a district team, please consider registering for a nearby one day workshop.
Register your district team of 3 to 9 colleagues. We suggest gathering district leadership, technology leaders, principals, librarians, and instructional coaches.
This event is being held at the Amazon Headquarters in Downtown Seattle. We encourage attendees to use public transit options or rideshare.
All attendees must provide a government issued ID at check-in for both Amazon headquarters & The Spheres.
