Matt Bateman (Higher Ground Education), Tanya Sheckley (UP Academy), Kelly Smith (Prenda), Ana Lorena Fabrega (Synthesis), Amar Kumar (KaiPod Learning), and Yusuf Ahmad (Samba) explore B.C. to A.D. Breaking Out of the Box: New Models for K-12 Education at the 2021 ASU+GSV Summit.It's been over 100 years since Maria Montessori began building her education philosophy, and a pandemic has ushered in a new era of models for K12 education. Led by school designer and reformer Yusuf Ahmad, this panel of experts will debate the new and revolutionary forms education is taking in our post-pandemic era. From Prenda’s hyper-local micro-schools to UP Academy’s technology-infused schools, newly envisioned models mean newly opened investment space. Higher Ground’s scaling of its unique application of Montessori perspective to the global school space and Synthesis’s use of play and gamification originally started by Elon Musk at Ad Astra illustrate just how much the sky is the limit for all investors.
