We know there is a need for systemic innovation within our schools, and the pandemic has made this more apparent than ever. But, is it a bad thing that our eyes are now open to the challenges of our post-COVID school system? What silver lining can there be among all of this?

The surge in “pandemic pods,” micro-schools, and schools-within-a-school (SWAS) give us a glimpse into what we can expect for the future of schools in a post-pandemic world. We can look at this moment in history as a time of disruptive innovation for schools, changing the educational landscape in a big way. It’s not necessarily a good or a bad thing, but simply a time of change to fit the changing needs of our students.

Listen in to learn more about disruptive innovation, what leaders in change we can look to, and how to begin creating that change together.
