Teaching Futures: Transforming Systems & Leaders

Mar 5, 2024

4:30pm – 5:00pm CT

Middle school can be a tricky age to teach, but it can also be really fun - especially if you're talking about the future(s) possible. Juli Rush leads students through a full Foresight project over a favorite middle school topic, from trends and implications to futures artifacts and immersive experiences. Teachers and students debate the use of current technologies and have critical conversations about the human impact on each other and the planet. Being challenged beyond their own perspective and bias, students are able to think through preferable, inclusive futures for all.
