ShapingEDU Global


A global community of over 4,000 passionate and insightful educators, students, researchers, storytellers, edtech creators and education futurists from communities of practice around the world.

Purpose, Vision, and Values

We are a constellation of dreamers, doers and drivers, dedicated to creating change so lifelong learners may thrive in the digital age.

ShapingEDU's 5 Calls To Action are the framework upon which we build unique and inspiring events, value-lead teams, changemaking projects and sharable resources.

We develop collaboration opportunities for representatives from diverse, active communities of practice. The global ShapingEDU Community works together to solve challenges and leverage new opportunities for enhancing teaching and learning. Our ShapingEDU Action Teams create resources ranging from podcast episodes to digital toolkits to live workshops to courses, available to anyone for free so that we may cultivate meaningful change.

Serious Play is near and dear to us: we take our work seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously, so expect a healthy dose of shenanigans in everything we produce.
