COVID and the global movement towards racial justice have disrupted school as never before. How do we teach amidst uncertainty and find ways in this moment to innovate and create common good? In this workshop we explore why purpose-driven learning is more relevant now than ever. Traditional learning focuses on thinking, or helping students develop key cognitive skills and content knowledge. Purpose Learning integrates thinking, feeling and doing, all at the same time. At the intersection of these three domains, students can explore their unique lens on the world and how they can take action — in other words, connect with their unique purpose. We understand the science of purpose and why it helps us stay grounded and learn deeper. We also see why purpose is the spark behind the global change makers our world needs now more than ever.
