Learning to Make a Difference: School as a Creative Community

Learning and Behavioural Sciences September 22, 2014

Education systems are failing to meet the needs of too many learners today because it ill equips them for the challenges of an uncertain, turbulent world in which they will have to find solutions to challenges with other people. Drawing on some of the most innovative organizations in the world, including Pixar and Barcelona FC, the author builds a case for schools as a place where children go to explore, create, make and learn together in a creative community with a cause. School should be the place where learners can discover their passions and purpose —and inspire their active and collaborative, problem-solving learning.
