Future Ready Workshop: West Virginia and Pennsylvania

Leading Innovative Change for Future Ready Schools 

Learn, network, and collaborate with peers in your area.

Wondering what the best next steps are to transform your district digital learning plan into one that includes a focus on personalizing learning while leveraging the power of technology to enhance student success?  With support from Future Ready Schools, districts are making this transformation by revamping such areas as curriculum, instruction, and assessment; personalized professional learning; innovative learning spaces; community partnerships; and other research-based solutions. This workshop will support leaders with free tools and resources to empower them to transform their schools into ones that better prepare students for the world they will face tomorrow. 

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Dive deep into the research-based Future Ready Framework and resources
  • Understand the strands, network, and tools to support your district’s transformation
  • Learn, network and share with like-minded peers in your area and  from other FRS districts that are immersed in the work
  • Begin or reignite your district’s planning efforts
  • Understand how FRS can support your efforts throughout the planning process and beyond
