This week we are going to be joined by several of my colleagues from the Harvard Graduate School of Education: Jenny Thomson (Monday), Christopher Dede (Tuesday), David Perkins (Wednesday), Julie Wilson (Thursday), and Howard Gardner (Friday). All but Julie are part of a GSE initiative on the Future of Learning, which is separate from the Futures of School Reform project that is coordinating this series. While our series focuses more on the institutional and organizational forms of future schooling, their initiative is more focused on the changing nature of learning, as well as shifts in the aims and purposes we hold for schools. We’re looking forward to their contributions to the conversation!

Jal Mehta is an assistant professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Note: Because the print version of Education Week is off this week, there will not be a longer commentary, but instead a series of posts in this space.

The opinions expressed in The Futures of School Reform are strictly those of the author(s) and do not reflect the opinions or endorsement of Editorial Projects in Education, or any of its publications.
