EDspaces 2019 Recap: Tony Wagner Wows Audience

Author and Visionary Delivers Keynote Sponsored by Gratnells

Tony Wagner, a globally recognized voice in education, focused his discussion on the need to prepare students for 21st Century opportunities, the need for students to build relevant skills, and learn to apply their knowledge for the benefit of an ever-changing world.

Noting that the most successful entrepreneurs, like Gates, Jobs, and Zuckerberg fell outside the normal boundaries of conventional institutions, he discussed how the true value of education must be in the opening of opportunities for young people and preparing them to be able to drive a rapidly-changing world.

The keynote address received a standing ovation by an audience of over 800 people interested in the advancement of school design and learning innovations.

Many attendees made their way to the Gratnells gallery after the keynote for the book signing, and all recipients were delighted to meet him and share some of their experiences in the field of teaching.

Tony Wagner serves as a Senior Research Fellow at the Learning Policy Institute, founded by Linda Darling-Hammond in 2015. Tony has also held a variety of positions at Harvard University for more than twenty years, including four years as an Expert in Residence at the Harvard Innovation Lab and the founder and co-director, for more than a decade, of the Change Leadership Group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
