  • Capturing the Future Ready Vision for Teaching and Learning in your District Today

    What does your vision for teaching and learning five years from now look like? Future Ready Schools (insert trademark symbol) provides a clear framework for K-12 school districts to help plan and implement research-based strategies for personalized student learning. Ohio became a Future Ready state in the Fall of 2017, and many Ohio schools are taking the pledge to commit to transitioning their districts in meaningful ways that will impact teacher development and student learning. Ohio Department of Education's Director of Integrated Technology Stephanie Meeks will introduce Ohio's Future Ready movement and what it means to be a Future Ready School. In addition, Graham Local Schools' administrative team will discuss their Future Ready vision in action. Principals Chad Miller, Chad Lensman, and Ryan Rismiller will share their elementary, middle, and high schools' programs and systems which support personalized digital learning that will prepare their students for future college and careers, as well as the workforce. Ohio Small Rural Collaborative President Ryan Rismiller will also share how small and rural schools working together can improve student learning and realize the Future Ready vision.
