Future Forwards

I'm pleased to be able to share with you ASB's new eBook entitled Future Forwards:  Exploring the Frontiers in Education at the American School of Bombay.  This book is a collection of thoughts, hypotheses, discussions, and reflections on practices, research and ideas that are relevant to emerging new paradigms of teaching and learning.  This is the first volume of Future Forwards, the second volume will be coming out in the Spring.

Inside Volume 1 of Future Forwards you will find three sections:

Paradigms - “Looking to the Future”
These chapters deal with paradigm shifts - different approaches that radically challenge established conventions about traditional subjects.   Here you will read about leading innovation, multi-age classrooms and designing a balanced school calendar.

Ideas - "The Next Step"
This section examines how current research is changing or impacting existing practices or established norms. Here you will find chapters about the maker movement, social entrepreneurship, action research and the International Research Collaborative (IRC) that ASB has established with other leading schools. The IRC is currently examining and evaluating 1:1 computing.

Practices - "Innovating in the Now"
These chapters describe the application of an instructional practice in a completely novel way or the successful mash-up of different practices. In this section you will read about our Day 9 initiatives, Project Based Learning and ASB's Intersessions.

The eBook is completely free - enjoy and please consider sharing it with others in your professional network.
