Our areas of expertise include: futures-oriented research, invisible learning, democratic education, non-formal and informal learning, education for under-represented communities, national policy development, and educational change.

We are a network of subject matter experts, big dreamers, and change agents. We have a virtual presence, and a global footprint. We seek long-term value in the creation of meaningful education futures.

Public speaking and workshops

In a world driven by exponential accelerating technological and social change, globalization, and a push for more creative innovations, how can we ensure the success of ourselves as individuals, communities, and the planet?

What does this mean for school leaders who seek the full development of human potential? How do our schools, companies, and other knowledge-based organizations fit in? More importantly, what do we need to do now?

Dr. John Moravec is an author, scholar, and the founder of Minneapolis-based Education Futures LLC.
