Description

INVENTING THE WORLD:

Supporting empathy and agency through a pedagogy of play



"In the past, jobs were about muscles; now they're about brains; but in the future, they'll be about the heart."
- Minouche Shafik, Director, London School of Economics

We live in a world of our making. Having a strong sense of agency comes from embracing the idea that we have the ability, right, and opportunity to design and create the world we want to live in. Negotiating that process of invention with others is hard work. It requires empathy, curiosity, flexibility, and capacity to embrace different perspectives.

School can be where we practice and strengthen these skills among others – it’s where strangers become community. At school, we can learn the benefits of taking safe risks, to become comfortable with uncertainty, to build emotional intelligence, and to exercise civic responsibility


Lunch included. Parking available in a lot on Beethoven or on the street.
