About this conversation
There are few sectors more important in the world than education, yet the basic makeup of many schools does not look all that different from how they did one hundred years ago. In an era where the world is changing at an incredibly rapid pace, education needs to be ahead of the curve. Aaron Tait is an impact innovator and is optimistic about the changes that are happening in schools, led by teachers, school leaders, entrepreneurs and most importantly kids, and at the Florence Guild event will share both a positive outlook for the future alongside some practical tools for those who want to be part of the next wave of education change.
