Savannah schools: Applications now being accepted for Teach for the Future Fellowship

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Teach Future St. Andrew's School Savannah schools

To invest in our students and those who teach them is to invest in our future. Applications are now being accepted for  Teach the Future Fellowship in Savannah , a yearlong fellowship for educators dedicated to transforming their schools and classrooms to prepare all students for the world as it is and will be, not as it was.

How can schools and classrooms be restructured to empower students to apply knowledge in new and unique ways? How do schools foster inquisitiveness and creativity? How can the power of technology as a creative tool be employed to enhance and expand students’ ability to connect and create in positive and valuable ways?

These questions are explored by educators in Teach the Future Fellowship in Savannah. Fellows identify a challenge in their classroom or school that they want to explore and for which they want to develop a unique solution. Through a series of programs during the fellowship, educators connect with and explore entrepreneurial approaches and frameworks, and relevant technological tools, that can be used in the development of the solution. Fellows have an opportunity to connect with other educators to help inspire, inform, and develop transformative solutions and approaches to teaching.

The fellowship is open to teachers and educational leaders from public and private institutions in the Savannah area. Fellows will have an opportunity to develop a broader network and connect with local resources in the technological and entrepreneurial space.

Application Deadline

Interested applicants should apply by Sept. 11 2018 online at teachthefuture.co. Annual tuition that covers costs for the entire year is $350.00. More information regarding program topics and dates can also be found online at teachthefuture.co.
