Annual Forum for School Leaders

Whole Group Session will include:

What is a 21st century school? Technology is radically changing every sector of our society, yet schools remain largely unchanged. Or do they? Hear from a panel of innovative NYC school leaders on the vanguard of rethinking urban education. They will speak about their experiences regarding what is important, the challenges and what's possible!
  • Alisa Berger: Principal, NYC iSchool
  • Sarah Scrogin: Principal, East Bronx Academy for the Future
  • Gregg Korrol: Principal, PS 101
  • Julian Cohen: Director, New School Development

Teaching Matters will also provide a new and simple assessment tool for gauging where your school lies on a continuum of the 21st century school outcomes. It will help you evaluate your school's readiness and offer a roadmap of ideas for innovation in those areas you deem most critical.
