Future-Focused Schools Study Tour – California April 16-26th 2017

We’re delighted to announce the draft itinerary for our tour of Californian schools that are pointing the way to the future of learning. There are only a few spaces left, so if you are interested in joining us please BOOK HERE, without delay!

Why These Schools?New Roads School

The US has some of the most innovative schools in the world – and many of them are in California. We’re starting our tour in Silicon Valley, because it’s there that our knowledge-based future is being shaped. Some of the leading schools here are built upon the ideas and creativity that shaped companies like Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook as well as disciplines like design thinking, blended and independent learning, and project-based learning. But our tour also takes in new models of schooling in Los Angeles and finishes in the outstanding High Tech High schools in San Diego.

Why This Trip?

We’ve formed strong associations with some of these schools, and our participants so far are drawn from inspirational schools in Australia, Europe, India and North America. So, the learning will be as much in the sharing of ideas from the participants, as it will in seeing great practice in the schools. We will also be HTH Hallwayshosting some intimate dinners with visionary educators. All of this will be led by David and Clare Price and arranged by Study Links Tours, of the UK – experts in educational travel tours.
