Task Force: Education

66-harkness

Education for Today and Tomorrow

Consider how Milton will build on its strong academic tradition, and over the next decade, prepare students to seek meaningful lifetime success and lead lives that “Dare to be true.” How should educational programs, teaching activities, and instructional practices respond, with strength and focus, to a rapidly changing environment and complex, interdependent issues?

Recommend broad priorities that address this goal, and consider:

  • How technology should support learning, exploration and critical thinking
  • The role of “non-classroom” educational opportunities
  • Educating students about multiculturalism and global perspectives
  • Points of alignment and coherence across grades and programs that represent particular learning experiences
  • Milton’s status relative to emerging educational trends
  • Conditions that facilitate re-imagining educational strategy and mix of activities
