Episode 12: School is broken with Adriano Di Prato

Episode 12: School is broken with Adriano Di Prato

If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?

“That all stakeholders in education need to stop holding on to the schools we know and start evolving schools that we truly need in support of all young people’s flourishing. That we are living in a moment of historic importance. That the current crisis is a turning point, not just for the rise of digital education, but for the entire education system. 

We need to be doing schooling differently.”


My guest today Adriano Di Prato is a breath of fresh air in the education system. A learning designer, prominent educational thought leader and was the social architect of a new dynamic learning ecosystem titled - Polaris, a vision for faith, learning and life for a new world environment. He is a current Partner in a School for tomorrow, a global educational network supporting students, teachers, and school leaders to thrive in a new world environment. 

Adriano is a former President of the Victorian Catholic Secondary Schools Deputy Principals Association (VCSSDPA) and in 2015 he was awarded Life Membership of the association for significant contributions to Catholic education. In 2019 Adriano was selected on the annual Hot List of movers and shakers in Australian education by The Educator AU magazine. Adriano is the former Deputy Principal of Marcellin College, Bulleen and Caroline Chisholm Catholic College, Braybrook Australia. Adriano is passionate about shaking up education and co-hosts a popular podcast called ‘Game Changers’.

As a kid who learnt more about life through sport, travel & trial & error, than I ever did at school, I have been a long believer that our education framework needs a shake up so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to talk with Adriano on such an important issue.
