I’d like to announce the launch of a project I’ve had a small role in. Teach the Future is a new effort to help teachers at all levels, K-16+, introduce futures thinking into classes.
TtF is developing starter kits for instructors in K-12 and higher education. There’s a broad-ranging social media presence (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Google+, and a blog). TtF leads are already working with teachers and schools. And the project is raising funds for next steps.
Teach the Future is led by Peter Bishop, who founded and led the University of Houston’s futures masters program for many years. Watch him explain the idea and his plans:
My role? I’m on the board, and help out how I can.
It’s an impressive, ambitious effort. Check it out.
