Global Moonshots in Education aims to transform a 100 year old, industrial era education protocol into a relevant, self directed experience that will empower learners of all ages to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
We believe that enabling students to develop their passion through meaningful, real world learning gives them the skills and mindset to address the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
Many educators desire change, but don’t know where to begin or are afraid to take the first steps. Others are already doing excellent and innovative work that would benefit from external validation and global amplification.
Our strategy is to train, connect and energize a global movement of Moonshot educators and innovators to empower learners of every age, around the world.
By creating the leading international alliance of educators, innovators and practitioners, we will drive systemic change.
