ShapingEDU: Dreamers, Doers, and Drivers Shaping the Future of Learning in the Digital Age

Sand box logo

ShapingEDU is a community of dreamers, doers, and drivers shaping the future of learning in the digital age. The vision is for changemaking individuals from a wide variety of learning-focused organizations across the world to collaborate on big ideas from conception to scale. By deliberate design, ShapingEDU is action-oriented and believes the future is what we invent it to be. 

At the ShapingEDU kick-off in April 2018, members of the community identified major themes in education that require strategic planning and focused action; 10 constructive actions emerged. Each of the 10 actions represents a neighborhood in the greater ShapingEDU community that collectively drives innovations to improve student success, collaboration, leadership, next-generation learning environments, and digital fluency. The 10 Actions will be fueling community progress, with each neighborhood tasked to answer their respective call-to-action.

Nearly 170 people have signed up to join one of the 10 neighborhoods, with the working kicking off on September 13, 2018. Anyone can join ShapingEDU. New "neighbors" who join after the online community launch on September 13 will be alerted when their neighborhoods are ready for them.
