Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson will ask how do we make change happen in education and how do we make it last?
Every country on Earth at the moment is reforming public education. There are two reasons for this. The first of them is economic. The people are trying to work out how do we educate our children to take their place in the economies of the 21st century?
How do we do that given that we can’t anticipate what the economy will look like at the end of this week, as the recent turmoil demonstrated.
The second is cultural. Every country on earth is trying to figure out how do we educate our children so they have a sense cultural identity so that we can pass on the cultural genes of our communities, while being part of the process of glottalization. How do we square that circle?
