Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
How might we educate our youth to thrive in light of mind, brain and education research, significant technology change, globalisation and a rapidly changing, unknown future?
- explore what we know about mind/brain/education research, globalization and the digital revolution.
- determine their influence on learning and education.
- rethink the why, who, what, where, when and how people learn.
- consider what might be done differently in practice as a result.
- collaboratively design a plan for change within the context of our schools.
