Staying on the Innovative Edge: 
Connecting to Our International Thought Partners

In an effort to help you stay on the leading/innovative edge of education, last week we shared one of the Partnership's favorite visionary platforms - HundrEd. This week we are focusing on the Atlantic Rim Collaboratory (ARC) [1]: 

Atlantic Rim Collaboratory (ARC) 
The Atlantic Rim Collaboratory is an international network of policymakers, scholars and educators from multiple nations that share similar education values. ARC strives to work in a way that complements the educational initiatives of transnational organizations like the United Nations (UN) and Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). 

Through open dialogue, shared problem-solving and engagement with world-class thought leadership, ARC participants share strategies and provide constructive feedback on how to reinforce and enhance equity, excellence, inclusion, wellbeing, democracy, and human rights for all young people.

Jeannie Oakes, Presidential Professor Emeritus in Educational Equity at UCLA, said this about ARC: "In a world responding to migration and diversity with fear, hate, conflict and violence, it is beyond inspiring to see eight major education systems come together to grapple with how democracies can and should educate the next generation to be better. Moving beyond the facile use of academic achievement as the be-and-end-all of schooling, these systems have recognized and are working together to elevate the vital importance of wellbeing and inclusion as what schools should strive for and how the goodness of schools and systems should be judged."[2]

The Atlantic Rim Collaboratory's "ARC Ideas" webpage [3] features short videos or "talks" from several of our favorite thinkers discussing topics like equity, opportunity, change and leadership. Go directly to a few of them now: 
More information about the Atlantic Rim Collaboratory and other key education innovators can be found in our white paper - Innovation and Deep Learning: Volume 2 - on the Stark Education Partnership website.
