100 CREATIVES RETHINK THE SCHOOLS OF THE 21st CENTURY.
“WHAT COULD THE EDUCATION SYSTEM LEARN FROM THE CREATIVE INDUSTRIES?”
Let´s assume, you could innovate today´s secondary schools and inspire the global 21st century learning initiatives with your thoughts and ideas. We‘d like to invite you to be a part of this initiative to advocate for divergent thinking in our children’s future education. Help develop a vision for schools that foster creativity. The results of our overall research will be published in the book „Classroom Think Tank“.
THE IDEA OF THE BOOK
Assuming the whole education system will need to make a radical transition in many countries around the world, German Chief Creative Director Leonard Sommer and the Berlin School of Creative Leadership
have asked more than 100 creatives and futurists in 35 countries to contribute their thoughts toward the development of an innovative framework for 21st-century education. The reserach focuses on rethinking the organizational design and learning culture of schools, the role of teachers and parents, and teaching methods and assessment models. CLASSROOM THINKTANK will collate the visions, opinions and ideas of almost 100 inspiring individuals from all over the world. Our vision is to launch the book at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2017.
