Dramatic educational innovation and revolutionary ideas are often the spawning ground for great learning spaces. Get inspired by a unique vision for the future of education and explore how pedagogical development changes the way we think about learning environments of today and tomorrow.
Kick off EDspaces with one of the true visionaries in education. Tony Wagner will share his insight on why innovation is today's most essential real-world skill. When information is ubiquitous and free, and when basic education is available to billions of people worldwide, only one set of skills can ensure this generation's economic future: the capacity for innovation. The skills and dispositions for innovation are equally important for active and informed citizenship.
What must parents, teachers, mentors, and employers do to develop the capacities of many more young people to be the innovators that they want to be - and that we need them to become? What do the best schools and colleges do to teach the skills of innovation? In a talk based on his most recent books, Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World, and Most Likely to Succeed, Tony Wagner addresses questions vital to the future.
