School of Thought – The Future of Learning


From 2013-14 I ran a Research Center (a la Bell Labs) for Pearson.  Our ‘think tank’ was the Center for eLearning.  One of my proudest achievements was the creation of a short-film titled, “School of Thought.”  The 21 minute movie has been broken down into 3 vignettes – the story of a working adult, getting her nursing degree; her high school son working in a PBL environment; and her middle school daughter facing the challenges of education at that level.  Could this be the future of learning?  Time will tell…

About Jeff Borden

My title at work is ‘Chief Innovation Officer.’ So I'm trying to transform teaching and learning at scale. How do I do that? Through my "life" jobs. Primarily, I'm a dad and husband. But I'm also a professor, writer, professional speaker, comedian, researcher, lifelong learner, musician, dog-owner, and even a ranked disc golfer... I've spoken to, trained, or consulted with hundreds of thousands of educators at all levels, in numerous countries, K-20, about how to teach and learn effectively in the 21st Century.
