Moonshot Thinking in Education: Meaningful, Innovative, and Doable

Over fifty years ago, president John F. Kennedy said. "We choose to go to the moon not because it is easy, but because it is hard." Today, this approach inspires Google's X Lab to focus on radical solutions to huge challenges using breakthrough technologies. More importantly, any educator can take a moonshot in education by focusing on an innovative solution to a meaningful problem using appropriate technology.

This session aims to empower you to create the future you want to see in schools.
