Kyle Profile

A word from the Author:

Kids today can learn more from a five-minute YouTube Video or AI chatbot than they can from a full day of lectures. So what then is our role as classroom teachers?

In this groundbreaking book, seasoned educator Kyle Wagner examines the new role of the teacher in the 4th industrial revolution. You will learn how to shift from being a deliverer of content, to a thoughtful designer and facilitator of student-centered learning experiences who gently guides from behind the scenes. Kyle, a veteran co-learning experience designer, former classroom teacher, and school leader unpacks each of the 12 shifts required to build these student-centered environments.

You will learn how to shift from:

From a content-led to

Inquiry-based approach in the classroom

From siloed to

Real world, interdisciplinary mastery of skills

From boring Worksheets to

Curating beautiful, real-world work

From Teacher- assessed to

Self, peer and community assessed learning
Through stories from real student-centered classrooms around each shift, and anecdotes from the author’s experience teaching and leading micro-academies, you will come away ready to unleash student creativity, build thoughtful inquirers, and develop self-directed learners within your own context.
