The winds of change are in the air in education. We can feel them everywhere. We see schools asking fundamental questions about what kids should know, and how they should know it. There is a technology revolution taking place that’s disrupting conventional ways of teaching and learning. Just sit down with any school-age child today and see how differently she interacts and uses information from her bookbound parents. Debates are swirling around the Common Core, IB, standardized testing, smart games in schools and smart buildings to learn in. In this, the maiden voyage of our Prevailing Wins blog platform, we put up our sails and catch these winds of change. We are a group of educators, mainly based in Asia, but looking to expand our network globally. We are united by our passion for sustainability – as a way of seeing the Earth, learning about it, and living on it. We take a systems approach to understanding the complexity and beauty of nature. In our roles as educators we look for lessons in the natural environment to teach about sustainability. We invite other educators at all levels to contribute your ideas, innovations and lessons learned about teaching sustainability wherever you find yourself. Tell us about your sustainable “prevailing wins,” and non-prevailing loses, what inspires and motivates you to change the world, one student at a time. The blog will is co-moderated by Kevin Sullivan and Laurence Myers.
