Designing the Future: Human-Centered Schools for Equitable Learning

Let's reimagine education to promote equity, flexibility, and meaningful learning experiences for all. Join us for a dynamic exploration at this year's Leading Schools of the Future Pre-Conference. Discover how Human-Centered Schools can enhance teaching and learning in today's rapidly evolving world. We'll delve into high-impact strategies for creating equitable learning environments that prioritize the well-being of students and educators. Together, we will address key questions, such as:

  • What defines a Human-Centered School?
  • How can we integrate technology and AI while maintaining a human-centered approach to improve student outcomes?
  • In what ways can a human-centered focus bolster culturally sustaining pedagogies and equity initiatives?

School leaders will leave equipped with actionable insights to implement human-centered design principles, leveraging technology to foster inclusive and effective educational experiences. Join us and be part of shaping the future of education.


A Leadership Team of 3-5 that includes the Head of School and/or School Principal along with any or all of the following: Vice Principal, Information Technology and Computer Science Lead, Instructional Coaches, Curriculum Leads, and Key Teacher Leaders.
