Educating for Today and Tomorrow: Connecting Project Zero Research with Global Issues will focus on current Project Zero approaches to creating learning environments and instructional materials that help learners develop the thinking skills, habits of mind, and global understandings they need in the world of today and tomorrow.

Howard Gardner, David Perkins, Shari Tishman and several other prominent Project Zero researchers will speak at the conference. The conference will also offer a wide selection of interactive sessions that focus on several well-known Project Zero frameworks and themes, including Teaching for Understanding, Visible Thinking, Artful Thinking, Studio Thinking, Educating for the 21st Century, GoodWork, and Multiple Intelligences. Interactive sessions will be led by practitioners currently using Project Zero ideas in schools and museums, as well as Project Zero researchers.

In a special collaboration with the National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian Institution museums, the first day of the conference will focus on learning in museums and learning through art. The conference will open at The National Gallery of Art and participants will spend the entire first day in sessions in various museums on the National Mall. The sessions will be appropriate for educators in all disciplines, not just the arts. On February 13 and 14 the conference will continue at the Cleveland Park campus of the Washington International School.
