Inspiring Future Schools now on video

April 8, 2021

What does a future school look like? How does a school become future fit? How do they put their values and vision into practice?

There is no better way to answer questions than seeing the solutions in action.

ALL is creating a series of videos showcasing inspiring schools. The first three are The Liger Leadership Academy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, The Green School in Bali (and now in New Zealand, South Africa and Mexico), and Te Kura Maori o Nga Tapuwae in Auckland, New Zealand.

Each video shows that creating a Future School is not only possible but that the Future School is very much here now.

The schools were chosen because they showcase the design principles that future-focused schools have in common. These fall into three clusters: values, operational philosophy and the learner’s experience.

The Liger Leadership Academy is led by Jeff Holte who describes how the school has been shaped to create ethical leaders of the future.

At the Green School, the curriculum design is derived from the principles of relevance, purpose, relational and ecosystemic.

Te Kura Maori o Nga Tapuwae school is focussed on the belief that to create successful futures, young people need to discover who they are together with a sense of a belonging and having a strong identity as Maori students.
