It's so easy to get wrapped up in our day-to-day jobs that we don't make time for the exploration of new ideas. But from a professional growth standpoint, learning from people outside of our own industry may be just what we need to breath new life into our day-to-day jobs.
As our CEO, Eileen Murphy, always says, "It's time to think courageously about how we can improve learning on scale." Every one of the 55 million students in the K-12 education system deserves that. To get there, we may need to look to other industries for inspiration. In fact, this idea was the catalyst behind our new Education + Entrepreneurship newsletter.
In the classroom, we encourage students to keep an open mind and to learn from peers who hold diverse opinions. Imagine the solutions we could develop for our students by exploring new ideas from a variety of sectors, from entrepreneurship, to design, to the arts.
A good place to start is by signing up for non-education newsletters. Here are five must-read newsletters that will inspire and encourage you.
Happy reading :)
