I had the honor and pleasure of acting as a panelist for a webinar yesterday hosted by Partnership 21 (P21) on distributed leadership. P21, while not quite a household name yet, is a large non-profit education organization that partners with schools, industry, and government to support 21st century learning in schools. They have an exemplar program that my school and our cluster of schools were recognized for this past fall.
From their website: “P21’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for 21st century learning by building collaborative partnerships among education, business, community, and government leaders so that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in a world where change is constant and learning never stops.”
The panel is made up of principals of schools who are doing the 21st century learning P21 advocates for, so I was thrilled to be asked to sit on the panel as well to represent what we do in the Lanier School Cluster within Gwinnett County Public Schools. If so inclined, check out the video above, and consider finding a way to get out to Napa for the Patterns of Innovation conference in March. I’ll be there as a presenter. I’m looking forward to meeting my fellow panelist there as well!
