Watch the documentary with your friends, family, and school community and use the Film Guide below to host a discussion about what you can do to make education more relevant, engaging, and connected to the real world.
To let us know you’re planning to hold a screening and order hard copies of the film guide, get in touch at FutureLearning@edge.co.uk
Use the Film Guide on the right to host a meaningful discussion.
What practices did you see that might be valuable to your school?
On a scale of 1 to 10 (where 1 is a very conventional instruction-driven school and 10 is highly progressive along the lines of XP School), how would you rate your school?
Do you believe it’s possible for your school to surpass what you saw at XP? [Note: you can!!]
What is your school’s culture when it comes to change? What are recent changes that stuck? Does someone with an innovative idea feel supported, or frustrated? How could you better encourage innovation?
Do you believe your school is preparing students for life, or for the stuff of school (e.g., testing, university applications, next year’s courses)? Are those goals aligned or in conflict?
If you are planning to host a screening in your community, email FutureLearning@edge.co.uk to let us know, and we would be happy to mail you card copies of the film guide!
