What constitutes an effective and powerful learning experience in the 21st century? As we examine the shifting terrain of education, it is essential to be responsive to complex social developments and to create learning experiences that are engaging and exciting for all learners. How do we best prepare young people for a future that is hard to imagine? How do we teach for the kind of deep understanding that requires learners to solve complex problems? How do we ensure that the work we do is ethical, excellent and engaging? How do we encourage students to fall in love with learning?
 
The Project Zero Classroom features various frameworks and tools that enable you to look at teaching analytically, develop new approaches to planning and make informed decisions about instruction. As a participant, you will explore ways to deepen student engagement; encourage learners to think critically and creatively; and make learning and thinking visible. In a Project Zero classroom, teachers are also learners who model intellectual curiosity and rigor, interdisciplinary and collaborative inquiry, and sensitivity to the ethical and aesthetic dimensions of learning.
