How can schools foster social connectedness as well as diversity? How can they move away from standardized instruction? How can a paradigm shift take place within schools?
The ‘Unfolding’ symposium held in the Netherlands in February 2017, creatively addressed these challenging questions about education today. The symposium was hosted by NIVOZ in collaboration with the Learning for Well-being Foundation.
Inspiring examples of everyday interaction in classrooms and schools provided a powerful start to each session. Using high quality short videos specially filmed for the symposium, interviews followed with the teachers and school principals who featured in the films. Then mixed tables of practitioners and academicians discussed the themes that emerged. Only then was the floor given to academic experts who put theory at the service of practice.
The insights and ideas generated high level ‘dialogue’ which are shared here.
