Here is the closing statement from this years Learning Without Frontiers from Sir Ken Robinson. I enjoyed the whole three day conference and this was a nice round up of the event, just a pity he wasn’t able t be there in person.
“Reforms are required for our industrial scale education systems but what forms shall they take, what will they value and what purpose shall they serve? In closing the LWF 12 conference Sir Ken Robinson reflects on what has been heard and discussed with previous speakers and offers a call to action for the delegates to look at the future with a new determination based upon the challenges that future generations face and where our education systems will need to nurture the creative innovators upon which our future well-being will be placed.” Sir Ken Robinson, January 2012.
I’m looking forward to next years conference – LWF13 – but will wait until the theme and speakers are announced before I get too excited.
