Event Description

Thursday 9th November, 6pm-8pm
Session 6: Global to Local - Re-imagining school
Is the current education system bringing the best out of children who learn in such different ways? We take a look at some alternatives. Education expert Ken Robinson suggests learning should be more personalised in Bring on the learning revolution! We hear how music can change lives with Jose Antonio Abreu and his The El Sistema music revolution and Dave Eggers explains how the 826 Tutoring Centre has changed lives in My wish: Once Upon a School.

In Hackney initiatives inspired by Dave Eggers’ vision have been going strong for many years. What are they providing that the regular classroom isn’t? Joining the discussion are Lily East, director of learning at Hackney Pirates and Jessica Randal, writing programme leader at Ministry of Stories.
