Dr. Ian Jukes is the founder of an educational leadership consulting firm. He has been a classroom teacher, teaching every grade from kindergarten to Grade 12. He is the author of Reinventing Learning for the Always-On Generation.

The Malibu Library Speaker Series presents educator Ian Jukes on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at 7 pm at Malibu Library.

Dr. Jukes is the founder of the InfoSavvy Group, an international educational leadership consulting firm based in Canada. He has been a classroom teacher, teaching every grade from kindergarten to Grade 12. He has written or co-written 27 books and education series. His most recent books include: Literacy is Still Not Enough; Learner Voice, Learner Choice; LeaderShift 2020; A Brief History of the Future of Education, and the award-winning Reinventing Learning for the Always-On Generation.

First and foremost, Dr. Jukes is a passionate educational evangelist. His focus continues to be on the compelling need to restructure our educational institutions so that they become relevant to the current and future needs of the digital generations—and to prepare learners for their future, not just society's past.

Reinventing Learning for the Always-on Generation: New Connections looks at the modern world, examines the new entry skills students will need to be successful in digitally infused working environments, and provides a comprehensive profile of 10 core learning attributes of digital learners. What are the new thinking skills our students will require, and how must we shift instruction to ensure we are equipping them with these skills? New Connections provides a practical look at how we can teach effectively in a time when emergent technologies cascade onto the new digital landscape.

This event will take place at Malibu Library. RSVPs are required.

About the branch

Malibu Library, located in the Malibu Civic Center Complex, was established in 1970 by the County of Los Angeles Public Library. Prior to 1970, a bookmobile provided library service to the Malibu community serving residents in Topanga Canyon and along the Pacific Coast Highway.

On April 22, 2012, a grand opening celebration was held to mark the completion of a $6 million renovation of the Malibu Library, designed by the architectural firm of LPA, Inc. and funded by revenue generated from local property taxes.

The new sustainable, LEED-certified library has been redesigned to represent Malibu's sand, sea and sun culture with features such as:

-A replica of the Adamson House tile rug in the main lobby
-A photographic exhibit featuring historical images of the area
-The Children's area featuring a marine life motif, including an 8' by 14' porcelain tile art piece designed by artist Christine Nguyen
-A Teen area that embraces Malibu's surf culture.
