This Askwith Forum will offer insights gleaned from a half-century of iconoclastic investigations into changing conceptions of the mind and the implications of these changes for today’s teachers, schools, and society.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to explore and reflect on how our perceptions of how our minds work have changed over the past fifty years,” said Daniel Wilson, director of Project Zero. "The role of education in today’s complex world requires us to take stock in what we know about the human mind and consider how to best cultivate citizens of tomorrow. We look forward to sharing views on major insights, and discussing implications for educators from current luminary thinkers in our field.”
Project Zero (PZ) is a Harvard Graduate School of Education research center that focuses on learning, thinking, and creativity in the arts, as well as humanistic and scientific disciplines, at the individual and institutional levels. Project Zero will launch its year-long 50th anniversary by hosting this special Askwith Forum as part of HUBweek in Boston.
