DR. PASI SAHLBERG'S MASTERCLASS 1 (SINGAPORE PREMIERE)
CURIOSITY, CREATIVITY AND PLAY: HOW EDUCATION CAN BE REDESIGNED TO ENHANCE THE 4TH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION?
MASTERCLASS | 15 APR 2019 | 9AM-5PM
Current transition from industrial and technological societies and economies towards co-creation, co-design and technological innovation requires full reimagining of education. We need to reclaim human capabilities and recognition of potential that each and every student has in doing this.
Curiosity needs to become the core currency in teaching and learning. Creativity should be more than just a buzz word as it has been until now. And we need to restore play back to schools and universities as well. Students learn by exploring, discovering, practicing and experimenting with life, without punishment or penalty, with freedom and encouragement. Play, both intellectual and physical, is critical for the healthy growth and learning.
This masterclass focuses on how to reimagine education at all levels through curiosity, creativity and play. It looks at how students learn and what is the role of play in learning. It provides participants with a global view to the state of creativity and play in education systems and engages them through personal experience and wisdom to work on practical models and methods to restore these new qualities into learning in school and beyond.
